HOWTO: Integrate yubnub with the command line.

Postby Taintedhero » 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

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

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.
