i didn't create the patch, it was created by Pantelis Panayiotou (plp)
tbh, i find the patch lacking cause:

1: it doesn't check /var/lib/locate/locate.db (just in case the distro use locate instead of mlocate)
2: it always show "Updated: Unknown" for non root, it should request for "administrative rights" when opening the "update search index" and change the button's text "unlock" to "update"
