Perform an Internet search, using your favorite engine



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.

Linux Mint Cinnamon 19.3 - the hotkeys work BUT they don't actually pop up the box to show what I am typing. So if I hit the hot keys and start typing blind, then hit enter - google will pop up a result. Would be great to be able to visually see the applet is responding and to be able to see what I am typing. Otherwise - it works - and its the only thing like it I have found so I'll deal with it till its fixed.

Poderia ter uma janela que aparece a pesquisa e quando clicar que abria no navegador. Também poderia fazer pesquisas de arquivos no computador(marcando uma caixa de pesquisa no computador.

Doesn't work after upgrading to Linux Mint 19.1
Very neat little applet. Could use the capability to assign a keyboard shortcut.
