I had a look to that code.
I am able to listen to two signals from baloo file indexer:
* at path /fileindexer for interface org.kde.baloo.fileindexer and the signal
* at path /files for interface org.kde and the signal changed.
The information I am not able to get are about files removed for example.
I had a look at code (filewatch.cpp, extractor/app.cpp, ...) but was unable to
locate such a dbus signal.
Is it something I could write as a patch for baloo ?
