Bodhi's DuckDuckGo Browser search
Content
Bodhi Linux has a partnership with the wonderful folks at <a class="bbc_url" title="External link" href="https://duckduckgo.com/" rel="nofollow external">DuckDuckGo</a> that helps generate some revenue to support our project. The default browser (Chromium 6.x &amp; Epiphany 5.1) which ships with Bodhi Linux [library term="version"] defaults to using the <a href="https://duckduckgo.com/">DuckDuckGo</a> 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. <h2>General Web Browser Instructions</h2> The Bodhi Linux / DuckDuckGo search line is <pre class="prettyprint"><span class="pln">https</span><span class="pun">:</span><span class="com">//duckduckgo.com/?q=%s&amp;t=bodhi</span></pre> Add this into your browsers Search Engine settings. Instructions for specific browser are listed below: <h2>Chromium / Chrome</h2> From within your browser (<a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/a/chromium/">Chromium</a> or Chrome), enter <em>chrome://settings/searchEngines</em> into the page navigation bar and hit &lt;return&gt;. This will open the search engine configuration page where you will see a list of default / other search engines. At the end of <em>the Default Search Engine</em> list, on the right, there's an <em>Add</em> button. Click <em>Add</em> to open the <em>Add Search Engine</em> window. Enter the following details into the appropriate fields and click <em>Add</em> to complete. <ul> <li><strong>Search Engine</strong>: <code>Bodhi Linux DuckDuckGo</code></li> <li><strong>Keyword</strong>: <code>duckduckgo.com</code></li> <li><strong>URL</strong>: <code><span class="pln">https</span><span class="pun">:</span><span class="com">//duckduckgo.com/?q=%s&amp;t=bodhi</span></code></li> </ul> You will now see an entry labeled "Bodhi Linux DuckDuckGO" within the "Other Search Engines" list. Click the ellipses to the right of the entry and select  "Make Default". Every search you make from now on you will be supporting Bodhi Linux. Thank you! <h2>Firefox</h2> In <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/a/firefox/">Firefox</a>, click the search icon on the toolbar to the right of the URL bar, this will open the "Add Custom Search Engine" page. Enter the following details: <ul> <li><strong>Name</strong>: <code>Bodhi Linux DuckDuckGo</code></li> <li><strong>Search URL</strong>: <code><span class="pln">https</span><span class="pun">:</span><span class="com">//duckduckgo.com/?q=%s&amp;t=bodhi</span></code></li> </ul> Now click the "<em>Add Custom Search Engine</em>" button. A new page will open outlining how to add the new search engine. In summary, open the "Page Actions" menu by clicking the 3 ellipses to the right and within the URL bar.  Click the submenu item labeled: "Add Search Engine". Next, you need to set "Bodi Linux DuckDuckGo" as your default search engine. Enter about:preferences#search into the URL bar to open Search settings. Under the section titled Default Search Engine, select "Bodhi Linux DuckDuckGo". Every search you make from now on you will be supporting Bodhi Linux. Thank you! <h2>Microsoft Edge</h2> From within Edge browser, enter <em>edge://settings/searchEngines</em> into the page navigation bar and hit &lt;return&gt;. This will open the search engine configuration page where you will see a list of Address Bar search engines. On the right, there's an <em>Add</em> button. Click <em>Add</em> to open the <em>Add Search Engine</em> window. Enter the following details into the appropriate fields and click <em>Add</em> to complete. <ul> <li><strong>Search Engine</strong>: <code>Bodhi Linux DuckDuckGo</code></li> <li><strong>Keyword</strong>: <code>duckduckgo.com</code></li> <li><strong>URL</strong>: <code><span class="pln">https</span><span class="pun">:</span><span class="com">//duckduckgo.com/?q=%s&amp;t=bodhi</span></code></li> </ul> <p style="padding-left: 30px"><strong>NOTE</strong>: If there is already a DuckDuckGo Search Engine in your list then you will need to change the <strong><em>keyword</em></strong> above as it appears you cannot have duplicates. Change it to something subtly different, one suggestion being: <code>.DuckDuckGo</code> (prefixed with a period).</p> You will now see an entry labeled "Bodhi Linux DuckDuckGO" within the "Other Search Engines" list. Click the ellipses to the right of the entry and select  "Make Default". Every search you make from now on you will be supporting Bodhi Linux. Thank you! <h2>Other?</h2> Have any questions/issues defining the search in your favorite browser?
