    @vasa1 I like the way you got your search set up, just going to use yours for awhile. If I keep it I will send you one bean

    @Elfy FF is too heavy for this box, I run QupZilla. But I will Zotero your plugin for future use.

    Edit

    ubuntuforums
    help.ubuntu
    wiki.ubuntu
    askubuntu
    bugs.launchpad

    I use Arch support a lot, think I will add it to mine.

    @Elfy I do not use Crunchbang support, is it comparable to Arch?

    You can just bookmark it and use it as long as you like but making one's own custom engine is really simple

    I have set up my own custom google search site which I,ll link here later when back on my main machine. It uses this forum, askubuntu, ubuntu.com, launchpad and the wiki as sources and seems to work very well. Link to come later for those interested.

    Here's the link to the custom google search. I hope it's as useful to some others as it is to me.

    It definitely works.
    There are minor differences with
    site:ubuntuforums.org.
    However, there is no need to add a 'space' at the start of your query.

    It also has the advantage of 'looking the part'.

    Should it be 'this' that replaces the current Ubuntu search?

    I'm glad that you find it helpful.
    The other main difference from using the site:ubuntuforums.org search method is that my custom search is for those other sites as well as the forum, so therefore a bit wider in its findings.
