Creative Commons search handler for deskbar-applet

Filed under: GNOME, Python — acidborg @ 20:05

I was bored this afternoon, so I coded a handler for deskbar-applet.

To install it:

  • Download it
  • Untar the downloaded file: tar xvfz cc-search.tar.gz
  • Copy it to your deskbar-applet handlers directory: cp cc-search.py cc.png $HOME/.gnome2/deskbar-applet/handlers
  • Restart deskbar-applet
  • Go to the “Preferences” menu and load the handlers by clicking on the checkbox next to them
  • Start searching for CC licensed webs and images

This is a little part of the Gnome & Creative Commons integration project, but with little efforts like this, a complete integration would be managed soon.
