Description:

KISE is an adaption of search engines for Konqueror (all Google based), so that they don't use short cuts like "gg" but "search" or "image" or "movie". So that you can type search:acid2 in the alt-f2 dialog (or Konqui itself) and Konqui will come up with google searching for acid2.

HOWTO SETUP
========
in Konsole:
chmod +x install.sh
./install.sh
exit


HOWTO USE
=========
[shortcut]:[search TERM]
e.g.
cinemas:las vegas -> all films in Las Vegas
book:j.r.r. tolkien -> all books from Tolkien
images:KDE -> KDE images


NOTE
====
This package provides new search engines for
Konqueror. Some are designed to replace their ori-
ginal versions, and some are totally new.
Since I release some time ago the 'musikugel',
which provides exactly such desktop files for
music search, I of course included them in this
package.
So what's the point behind? - I'm searching a lot
actually most stuff with Google, and I disliked to
enter the URL by hand or remember a totally
strange shortcut (e.g. gg).
Why not enter 'search:'? It's even more intuitive
and also a lot more rememberable. So you talk to
Konqueror in some way, you say 'movie:red dragon'
and Konqueror will lead you to the Google movie-
search showing up "Red Dragon (2002)".

Why not just change the keywords for the existing searches, or add new ones there?

(I haven't tried the app yet, because I don't see the point, so I might be missing something :)

yup, you're missing something :-P

>Why not just change the keywords for the existing searches, or add new ones there?

seems like this is what I've done ;-)
maybe I should clarify this in the description?

I think you should add the Pubmed Medical Database search engine. This will be very useful for doctors, vets and other scientists. This is the file "pubmed.desktop": [Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Type=Service Name=Pubmed scientific database Name[ca]=Base de dades científica Pubmed Name[es]=Base de datos científica Pubmed Keys=pubmed,pm Query=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?db=PubMed&term=\\{@} ServiceTypes=SearchProvider Type=Service

"Pubmed.desktop" (now correct): [Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Type=Service Name=Pubmed scientific database Name[ca]=Base de dades científica Pubmed Name[es]=Base de datos científica Pubmed Keys=pubmed,pm Query=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?db=PubMed&term=\\{@} ServiceTypes=SearchProvider Type=Service

I don't see a reason why a "normal" user would need it.

but well, you can release it yourself:
* grab the script at http://dev.bit-freaks.net/apachelogger/playground/kise-script.tar.gz
* copy the desktop file into the searchproviders folder
* edit the README
* release it

Well, the normal use won't need it at all. I'll release it just in case somebody needs it.

This is very cool - now I can press Alt+F2 and search for images. File a wish to bugs.kde.org and ask to include it into kde.

Keep it up!

i agree, this is much better than the current unintuitive shortcuts...

Well, the whole system would need some changes, if it shell also be ultra usable (which is the aim for KDE 4 I think). Just changing/add those shortcuts isn't a solution I'd like to see in konqui.
So I'll work out a concept and then submit a wish.

And thanks for the compliments :-)
