Libextractor won't extract anything in Ubuntu 19.10

Hello everyone,
When I install Libextractor using:
`sudo apt-get install libextractor-dev extract`,

And run the extract command on any file, it will just return "keywords for file <filename> are:"

The libextractor.so file is in usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ , while the plugins are installed in usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libextractor.
The libextractor documentation specifies that these would be installed in the `usr/lib/libextractor`.
Also, I cannot set the environment variable as the path should be LIBEXTRACTOR_PREFIX/lib/libextractor/.

If I install it using the source package, it works fine, probably because it is installed in usr/local/lib and usr/local/lib/libextractor.
How to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance
