HOWTO: Integrate yubnub with the command line.

Postby Taintedhero on Fri Nov 30, 2007 9:18 am

Just a little guide I wrote because I think some people would find this to be useful.

Using a combination of Surfraw, Yubnub, Firefox, and Yakuake.
(You can use tilda or really any terminal to do this with, I just had problems with tilda and yakuake seems a bit more stable)

First, lets get the needed files...
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install surfraw yakuake


Now. we need to configure our .bashrc
Code: Select all
*Your Text Editor Here* ~/.bashrc


scroll all the way down and add.
Code: Select all
alias yb='sr yubnub'


Now, start Yakuake and press f12 to have your terminal drop down. Then type
Code: Select all
yb g google.com


If firefox is open, this command will start a new tab and search google.com for google.com

There you go. up and running, just type yb "parameters here" from now on to use the power of yub nub to search the web very powerfully, very quickly.

For those not familiar with yub nub, it is a very powerful, pseudo-command line for the web. For a bit of help using it. type
Code: Select all
yb ls

to get a list of commands.

Good luck.
