When I open Kickoff, there is the option to type-to-search for programs. However, the search results also list any files on the computer and also Firefox bookmarks.

I already succeeded to turn off the bookmark search as described here, but I also want to disable searching for files. Basically I just want to have applications displayed that are listed somewhere in Kickoff.


After posting the issue to the KDE forums, the solution was simply to do the same with the file /usr/share/kservices5/plasma-runner-baloosearch.desktop, i.e. copy to to ~/.local/share/kservices5/ and set X-KDE-PluginInfo-EnabledByDefault=false
