Xapian on Rails

just cloned one of my work projects at home, executed script/server and BAM:
"acts_as_xapian: No Ruby bindings for Xapian installed"

I installed xapian and set this all up on my ubuntu laptop, now again to set it up on my desktop, so I figured I would document it here because I forgot what I did on my laptop.

Here goes the steps I took:
1 - Went to ubuntu package manager, searched for "xapian", installed "libxapian-ruby1.8"
2 - run "rake xapian:rebuild_index models="Article"

done :),
maybe this was too easy for a blog post. whatever
