GNOME Terminal with Google search support

Recently I did a hack on GNOME Terminal, added the Google search support for it.

I think you may like it, so here comes the article.

As a programmer, the first thing after entering my desktop is “Opening Terminal”. I’m using Ubuntu Desktop, so it’s GNOME Terminal.

GNOME Terminal is great, easy to use with tab support. But it doesn’t support a feature: Search the selection text on Google.

So I hacked the terminal to add the support, now it looks like this:

When you done some jobs on terminal, the output message may make you confused, you can select the text and right-click, the menu with “Search On Google” is there!

So…How to get the “GNOME Terminal with Google search”?

Think about Ubuntu Tweak! I’ve already included this PPA to Ubuntu Tweak now!

Open Ubuntu Tweak, go to “Source Center”, enable “Google Terminal with Google search support”,  Click “Refresh”. You can get it so easily!
