Bodhi’s DuckDuckGo Browser search

Wikis > Bodhi's DuckDuckGo Browser search

Bodhi Linux has a partnership with the wonderful folks at DuckDuckGo that helps generate some revenue to support our project.

The default browser (Epiphany) which ships with Bodhi Linux 6.0.0 defaults to using the DuckDuckGo search engine.

If you have chosen a different default browser you can continue to support Bodhi Linux by configuring your preferred browser to use the Bodhi Linux DuckDuckGo search.

General Web Browser Instructions

The Bodhi Linux / DuckDuckGo search line is

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=%s&t=bodhi

Add this into your browsers Search Engine settings. Instructions for specific browser are listed below:
