Updated baloo-widgets packages add missing dependency for metadata extraction

Publication date: 19 Jun 2018
Type: bugfix
Affected Mageia releases : 6


Baloo is the KDE application responsible (among other things) for extracting
file metadata and handing it over to other KDE applications, including Dolphin.

When Baloo's file indexing is disabled, it relies on a tool provided by the
baloo-widgets package to extract metadata on-the-fly, but baloo-widgets was not
installed by default on Mageia 6. This update fixes it by making it a dependency
of the KF5BalooWidgets library (used by Dolphin).
