Lubuntu Synaptic doesn't have the quick search working

After installing lubuntu you may find that the synaptic application for doesn't have a function "quick search" text box.  This is because of a missing indexer that isn't loaded when the O/S is installed. To get around the problem open a terminal and enter:

sudo apt-get install apt-xapian-index

After supplying your privilege password the package should be installed and start indexing for you.
