Disabling BALOO in Linux Mint 17 Qiana KDE

There is a bug with this program, which is using one of my processors and making my system sluggish:

Following the steps here:

I edited:
$HOME/.kde/share/config/baloofilerc

And added the option:
Indexing-Enabled=true  
 
Also I erased the directory with the indexing, since I do not need it anymore:
rm -rf ~/.local/share/baloo

Hey, don't you mean 'Indexing-Enabled=false'?

Or instead -

$ balooctl disable
