Hi UDSF fans,

If you wish, like me, to search something in the UDSF using a search engine plugin for firefox just paste the line below in your Firefox URL bar.


Obsolete

Thanks to LKRaider for this smooth way to install the plugin.

That's all ;)

You don't know what the Ubuntu Document Storage Facility is ?
Why not visit the site and see by yourself ! : http://doc.gwos.org/index.php/Main_Page

Frodon: Thanks for the guide :)
if u have installed Firefox 1.5 or greater from Automatix, the instructions would be as follow:

wget ***
wget ***
sudo mv UDSF.src /opt/firefox/searchplugins/
sudo mv UDSF.gif /opt/firefox/searchplugins/

Sooo...

~ if you upgraded on your own & do _NOT_ use Ubuntu's Firefox Package...
~ if you upgraded on your own _WITHOUT_ Automatix... And _if_ your Firefox was placed in /opt folder, you can still...

wget ***
wget ***
sudo mv UDSF.src /opt/firefox/searchplugins/
sudo mv UDSF.gif /opt/firefox/searchplugins/__???__

Great resource!

How about using a javascript link to install? Way easier! :D
Just copy and paste the following code into your Firefox URL bar:

javascript:window.sidebar.addSearchEngine('***','* **','Ubuntu Document Storage', 'Search');

LKRaider - thank you very much. I have been windows free for about a week and my transition would have much better if I had found this sooner. Thanks.

Thank you much. This rocks. Additionally, check this page out (http://gas.tranza.it/2006-ubuntu-search/) for an UbuntuForums search plugin.

Frodon How about our windows brethren? Not that I know anyone who runs Windows XP mind you.... :lol:

Download these two files:

UDSF.src (http://frodubuntu.free.fr/ubuntu/UDSF.src)
UDSF.gif (http://frodubuntu.free.fr/ubuntu/UDSF.gif)

On your browser choose "Save as" for the UDSF.gif.

Save them to:

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins

Close and re-start Firefox.

dbw: Thanks for the others

Hi xpod.

Additional tools can be found here: Additional search tool bars, Ubuntu Forums, Pachage search ,etc (http://gas.tranza.it/2006-ubuntu-search/)

And Here: Ubuntu search bars (http://mycroft.mozdev.org/download.html?name=Ubuntu&sherlock=&opensearch=&submitform=Search)

Be sure to enable Java first !

Here is an Ubuntu Menu: Ubuntu Menu (firefox add-on) (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2302/)
