OK, if you don’t know what Soylent is, read this series by Ars :

Rejoice, you will soon be able to do it!

My body is ready!

I’m not using any semantic desktop and don’t really care about all the search and indexing stuff. Some may find it useful but I don’t.
There is no real way to remove baloo in latest KDE (what you get if you install Kubuntu 14.04).
So here is how you can get rid of it (from a shell) :
$> sudo mv /usr/bin/baloo_file /usr/bin/baloo_file.orig
$> sudo ln -s /bin/true /usr/bin/baloo_file
$> sudo mv /usr/bin/baloo_file_cleaner /usr/bin/baloo_file_cleaner.orig
$> sudo ln -s /bin/true /usr/bin/baloo_file_cleaner
$> sudo mv /usr/bin/baloo_file_extractor /usr/bin/baloo_file_extractor.orig
$> sudo ln -s /bin/true /usr/bin/baloo_file_extractor
$> echo ‘Indexing-Enabled=false’ >> $HOME/.kde/share/config/baloofilerc
$> ps ax | grep baloo
$> kill all_pid_you_get_above
Relogin and check to be sure.
To clean up baloo cache folder:
$> rm -r $HOME/.local/share/baloo/
