Description:

Ever wanted a quick access to informations/meanings of words or phrases??

The KlipOQuery-Panelapplet for KDE is meant to be a bridge between Klipper and the Web. KlipOQuery will pass your active (text) selection or copied item to a selected service.
So, you 're able to access informations from any application simply by this triple:
Select Text -> Press Button -> Gain Informations

Features:

* Get informations of selected text from any application with only one click
* Define your own services
* Group this services in categories
* Often used services will be shown in a ranking
* Change selected services with the scrollwheel or right mouse button



The sourcepackage provides a bunch of "ready to use" english services.
(e.g. Wikipedia, Vivisimo, Babel ...)
An additional configuration file for german services is available, too. (see below)

Is it also working on KDE 3.5.7?

I compiled and installed it, but cant find it on the mini apps for the kicker :(

I have been after gurunet.com, answers.com to support Linux. They, of course, use the easy to use Microsoft browser COM object. Their patent is that you need not select the text, just do an alt-click on it. The idea of using this technique, originally part of the Wordpoint language translator, to a search engine, was actually mine, a good while back.

Nice and useful app!
Is there any way I can change the default browser used by WebKlip? I prefer Firefox...

And what about kapp->invoqueBrowser(theURL); (I don't remember well : I think it is in KApplication class) ?
It would automatically adopt default/preferred browser for everyone and don't need an option...

If you dont be afraid in changing the source code, yes you can! You only need to change "konqueror" to "firefox" or whatever browser you like in the file src/webklipaction.cpp line 84. In the next release there will be a choice for a default browser.

BUT note, if you use a different browser than konq. you won't have all the web-icons in the menu and on the button. (they come from konq chache)
