synapse you can also use the
Whisker Menu that already comes with Xfce4 (Xubuntu) to search your apps and launch a web search for you. This isn’t exactly like the Windows search but I think it will help with stuff you already have.
To set up the Web / Google Search part do the following:
- Right-click on the Whisker Menu and select Properties.
- Click on the Search Actions tab.
- Click on the
+for Add Actions
- Create Google Search
This is what I used for mine (but you can use any search engine you want as long as you use the
%u at the end for the results you are looking for):
Name: Google Search Pattern: ? Command: exo-open --launch WebBrowser https://www.google.com/search?q=%u
- Search menu for apps. (I used theme as example)
- Create Google Search in Search Box by starting with
?and press enter for results.
Hope this helps!
