Thought I'd say thanks, also! I had the same issue and was going to post a message but I hadn't gotten around to it yet... and now it works. :D

Hi, I am using the latest LMDE X64 install and I am having the same problem (Search bar is greyed out) so there is still a bug.
I tried sudo apt-get install apt-xapian-index
but it makes no difference
Any ideas?
Thanks

Hi willie42, thanks for reply, in fact I have just this second done a system reboot and that along with the
sudo apt-get install apt-xapian-index (which did install)
seems to have cured it
many thanks
