So I'm trying to use citext, but it appears to be MIA from ubuntu 14.04 postgres install. Where can you find this mythical beast called citext for postgresql 9.3?

project_test=> CREATE TABLE "customers_addresstype" (
project_test(>     "id" serial NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY,
project_test(>     "customer_id" integer NOT NULL REFERENCES "customers_customer" ("id") DEFERRABLE INITIALLY DEFERRED,
project_test(>     "display" citext NOT NULL,
project_test(>     UNIQUE ("customer_id", "display")
project_test(> )
project_test-> ;
ERROR:  type "citext" does not exist
LINE 4:     "display" citext NOT NULL,
                      ^
project_test=> CREATE EXTENSION IF NOT EXISTS citext WITH SCHEMA ext;
ERROR:  could not open extension control file "/usr/share/postgresql/9.3/extension/citext.control": No such file or directory


$ ls /usr/share/postgresql/9.3/extension

$ ls /usr/lib/postgresql/9.3/lib

I don't see in the repository and locate -i citext finds nothing.

Turns out the answer was on Stack overflow. And Daniel commented on it right about the time I was installing it.

sudo apt-get install postgresql-contrib-9.3
