Ubuntu: Change the Unity launcher search provider


If I enter a term that gives no hits in Applications etc. I will automatically redirected to the Yahoo search page.

How can I change the search provider there?

I found out, that the content-search is enabled in the settings:

gsettings list-recursively |grep remote-content-search  

This will show

com.canonical.Unity.Lenses remote-content-search 'all'  

Is this related? Or where can I set the automated search to another provider?


I didn't try it ever since, cause I didn't want to search with Yahoo. But now I cannot get this behaviour either any more. Maybe some updates solved this problem.

So the solution seems to be Update your system with:

sudo apt-get update  sudi apt-get upgrade
