Quick AUR search (KDE)

Something little which some may find useful:

Open up Konqueror. In the menus, Settings->Configure Konqueror...
Select Web Shortcuts and click the "New..." button.

Fill the screen as follows:
Search provider name: AUR
Search URI: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?K={@}
URI shortcuts: aur
Charset: utf8

Click OK to close all the screens.
Now you can use aur:package_name in the Run Command dialog (Alt+F2) and search packages quickly, e.g. "aur:torcs".

Hope someone will find it useful.

Re: Quick AUR search (KDE)

Ive been using kde for almost 2 years now, but once i started using xfce, i havnt looked back. although i have a pretty good hw (3200mhz 64bit + 1gb RAM) the application response is amazing with xfce. besides, most of what kde offers is available on xfce, and who needs all that extra configuration features anyway? oh, and last thing - my VistaBut theme for xfce rox... which makes me just love to stare at my desktop smile

Re: Quick AUR search (KDE)

I use shortcuts for wiki, forum and bug tracker search in konqueror as well..

Wiki
Search provider name: Arch Wiki
Search URI: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Spe … ={@}&go=Go
URI shortcuts: wiki
Charset: utf8

Forum by post
Search provider name: Arch forum
Search URI: http://bbs.archlinux.org/search.php?sou … ywords={@}
URI shortcuts: bbs
Charset: utf8

The above displays as post, and below displays by topic.

Forum by topic
Search provider name: Arch forum
Search URI: http://bbs.archlinux.org/search.php?sho … ywords={@}
URI shortcuts: bbs
Charset: utf8

Bug Tracker
Search provider name: Arch Flyspray
Search URI: http://bugs.archlinux.org/index.php?tas … string={@}
URI shortcuts: bug
Charset: utf8

Change project=0 to 1 if you just want to search official, and to 2 for just aur bug search.

Re: Quick AUR search (KDE)

Similar trick for the latest Opera (9.0): right click on a form (e.g. search box on Arch frontpage) and select Create search... voila, you have a shortcut.
