How Do I Change Linux Mint’s Default Search In Chromium To Normal?

#Topics: linux mint 15 chromium change default search,linux mint 15 chromium change default search site,linux mint chromium search engine

I’ve used Linux Mint for over 6 months, and have been loving it until I installed Mint 11 today. Everything was great until I loaded up chromium and saw that it only allows you to search through Mint’s custom Google search, which sucks. How do I change the settings so that it’s back to normal? Someone asked the same question earlier, and he ended up sort of answering the question himself, but I don’t understand what to do with the info he provides. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

What he meant was to right-click on the address bar, and select Edit Search Engines. After entering the Search Engines preferences, change the URL (2nd box) to google.com and replace the text in the 3rd box with:

{google:baseURL}search?{google:RLZ}{google:acceptedSuggestion}{google:originalQueryForSuggestion}sourceid=chrome&ie={inputEncoding}&q=%s

After entering the information into the boxes, you should be able to search normally again.
