I'm running a Ubuntu 16.04 machine and I noticed that whenever I install a new package (from command-line, I didn't try the Software center) I cannot find it, if I look for it by hitting Super. The package is installed fine, because I can call it by its name in the Terminal and there's the respective .desktop file in /usr/share/applications. However if I log out and log in again, I can find the application via Super.

Is this normal behavior?


I already had this issue since 15.10 and its the same in 16.04 now.

Its very similar to a problem stated here where it was zeitgeist related. Reinstantiating the zeitgeist db seemed to help. I did not try it though.
