Thanks for the hint anoa, I added sqlcipher as a dependency.

Element Desktop supports searching messages locally in encrypted rooms through something called seshat, which is bundled in the debian package. Seshat has a runtime dependency on libsqlcipher, and Element Desktop will print the following error upon startup if libsqlcipher is not found:

~ >>> element-desktop-nightly                                                  
Seshat unexpected error: Error: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Installing the sqlcipher package from the community repo solves this error and enables encrypted message search. I recommend adding it as a dependency of this package.
