Jaime Frutos Morales has developed a handler for Deskbar-Applet for the Gnome desktop which searches for CC licensed content. It can search webs using Google and Yahoo and images using Flickr. The idea comes from the CC Search web.




  • Download the handler
  • Untar the downloaded file: tar xvfz cc-search-0.2.tar.gz
  • Copy the uncompressed files to your deskbar-applet handlers directory: cp cc-search.* 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
  • You can modify your preferences clicking on the "More..." button
  • Click the "Close" button and start searching for CC licensed content
