Strigi is still somewhat experimental for us.  Your issue before would
be that strigidaemon wasn't installed.  It's now a dependency and it
should get started automatically when you do a search but it doesn't
seem to.  It also seems to crash when searching through the strigi:/
ioslave which is a bit of a problem.  However upstream is responsive
so hopefully we can get issues fixed.
