I've changed the international link og wikipedia from "en.wikip..." to "it.wikip...". It gave me search error in the italian page of Wikipedia, considering the voice inserted as unknown. Would you like to see the console report?

I've analyzed better the situation: some searches (for example, if you search "manson") open in wikipedia a "contextual menu" which allow you to choose various meanings of the inserted word. In my case, if I use the Italian link of wikipedia (http://it.wikipedia.org) and insert a word which will open a contextual menu, Wikip shows me the Italian page for "this voice does not exist".
In the mentioned case, your widget is not too useful :(
Pleas correct it, this widg is very practice!

Hello!
Thanks for bug report. I have made new beta version last year with some new versions, but it have one bug like this.
I 'll make correct version quickly.

I also have a question for you: did you type http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/
or http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speciale:Ricerca?search=

Second option fork better.

Google -- press Alt+F2 and type, gg:'search string'
Wikipedia -- press Alt+F2 and type, wp:'search string'

These are called Web Shortcuts and may be used in any Location bar in KDE. There are many predefined. You can also create new ones with ease. Look at Konqueror/Settings/Configure Konqueror... -> Web Shortcuts.

Even with this change it doesn't work for me. I wish it would, since this would be extremely useful.

Start the theme from within a terminal or console session and see what it says.
Copy and paste the output here and maybe you'll get some help. (I hope. At least I'm doing my best.)

Hi there,

I found the idea absolutely useful and so I wanted to use it. But it didn't run on my system.
I had to change ...

url = browser +" 'http://en.wikipedia.org/" + wiki/ + str(query) + "'"

... in line 18 of wikipedia.py to ...

url = browser +" 'http://en.wikipedia.org/" + "wiki/" + str(query) + "'"

(See it? "wiki/" is a string now. Otherwise I got the error message, that wiki is not defined.)

Now it works.
Thanks for this theme.
