This is a Cinnamon applet, which adds a Web Search box to your Cinnamon panel.
Left-clicking the item will open a search box where you can enter your criteria. You can right-click the applet to access additional settings - show or hide the provider label, change provider
1) Unzip, copy the folder "search-box@mtwebster" to "~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/". 2) Enable the applet in cinnamon settings.
error t=2014-07-18T16:41:18Z [Applet "search-box@mtwebster"]: Error importing applet.js from search-box@mtwebster
error t=2014-07-18T16:41:18Z Could not load applet search-box@mtwebster
Can we expect a fix anytime soon or is this applet effectively retired?
It sees it and "adds" it but I cannot see it on the panel anywhere!
I've got Cinnamon 2.0.14 - I don't have a ~/.Cinnamon/ directory
Not sure how much I can help - I'm sort of a blind man stumbling his way through a china shop at this point, but I'll try. :P
I've updated this applet to use a new settings provider class I made up, feel free to use it, comment on it, (or ridicule!) - it's not complete by any stretch, but a start - hopefully sometime down the road I can get it included in the Cinnamon js libraries if it passes muster.
const PROVIDER_FILE = GLib.build_filenamev([global.userdatadir, 'applets/search-box@mtwebster/providers.conf']);<br />
... so that it looks in the root dir instead?
