Re: [Deskbar] keywords

I tried out epiphany now, and I think I got misunderstood: Epiphany has
"smart bookmarks" which popup when typing arbitrary text in the
adressbar. This is just like deskbar which offers me to do a beagle
search or a web search or what ever.

Yes, that is Epiphany and Deskbar's default behaviour (because it is
more discoverable) but I really don't think that I misunderstand you:

0) System > Preferences > Preferred Applications: make sure "Epiphany
Web Browser" is the default

1) right click on deskbar > Preferences > select "Web Searches" > "More..."

2) click in the shortcut field next to the search engine to set a
shortcut (read the notes down the bottom of that window) - you can add
more search engines in Epiphany

3) drag the Web Searches handler to the top of the list if you want it
to be the one selected when you hit <Enter> (see the note at the
bottom of that window)

4) In Epiphany, enable the "Bookmark shortcuts" extension and type "g
deskbar" ('sudo apt-get install epiphany-extensions' if you need to)

I don't know how I can make it any easier than this. If you find this
difficult, I would seriously question whether you are actually faster
using the keyboard only - on the grounds of this article:

"We've done a cool $50 million of R & D on the Apple Human Interface.
We discovered, among other things, two pertinent facts:

  * Test subjects consistently report that keyboarding is faster than mousing.
  * The stopwatch consistently proves mousing is faster than keyboarding."

Hope this helps,
