How is these dash plugins used? The description says that they can let information being displayed under various headers. But when I really search it, the results wanted are not included, neither are the headers. I've enabled all the plugins. Can anyone explain how to use those plugins? Thanks very much.


Simply type something.

But keep in mind:

  • You need online results turned on for most of these enter image description here

  • type on the home scope to get results, the Applications one will only show which ones are installed

  • Some are disabled by default, because typing certain things in result in data being sent, in these situations you need to select them in filters

enter image description here

  • The filters are reset on a new search, and seem to be selected dynamically based on what you search.

Some only seem to be activated by specifically searching using the name - example manpages: htop will search the manpages for htop, or calc: 1+1 will show specific results: enter image description here

  • some are broken... facebook, flickr, yelp, don't seem to produce results...
