...and you can't find it if the search don't work. After reading this post (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=419586&postcount=147) in the meta-forum, I first thought of just answering the question with instructions on how to do a google site search. Then I realized the better way would be to submit a search bar utility, which led to a whole three hour diversion making the package meet their guidelines and such...

Anyway, if you look for "ubuntugoogle" at the firefox mycroft searchbar site (http://mycroft.mozdev.org/) the one-click installer will probably end up there eventually. In the meantime, here's the files for those ambitious enough to install it the old fashioned way. Just download the zip below and unpack the two files inside to your firefox profile "search" folder - example:

/home/poptones/.mozilla/firefox/default.zig/search

And when you restart the browser you'll have a quick and easy way to google the forums for those informative howtos and such.

" But given the growing importance of IT in so many organisations - when it breaks down, many people simply cannot do their job - we feel service desk teams should be given more help to manage the increasing workload.
"For example we are finding that end users can actually solve a lot of simpler IT problems themselves if they are provided with the right self-service software tools and access to knowledge based systems that learn from previous service incidents and provide advice and guidance on potential solutions. Much more productive than throwing something at the computer."
