Google Search in terminal

Want to use ‘Search on Google’ in selected text’s context menu in your Gnome Terminal? The developer of Ubuntu Tweak did a little hack on Gnome Terminal, added the Google search support for it.

So that you can quickly Google command line errors from terminal. Highlight the text, right-click on it and choose ‘Search on Google’. It opens the default web browser and go to the google search result page.

The developer has created a PPA to make it easy to install, but Ubuntu 13.10 is not supported yet. Fortunately, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander uses Gnome Terminal 3.6.1 which is same in Ubuntu 13.04 Raring. So you can install the DEBs for Raring on Saucy.
