Super Search requires IE. I could not get it to run in wine. However, I now use PAN and use web based search engines.

Second the use of PAN.
Used Forte Agent in MS Windows, thus Pan is a similar interface. You can get it through Synaptic.

Pan also supports nzb files, which is a great way to work with Usenet.

Thanks for the Pan tips guys. Using NewsLeecher in Linux, from what I have read has some challenges. I was wondering if anyone has found an easy way to use it in Ubuntu other than Wine or Vmware etc. I guess not yet.
