Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Canonical has developed the Unity Smart Scopes project for Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, transforming the Dash into a search area, acting itself like a search engine, capable of searching on both the local computer and online websites. Read this article to find out more about the Unity Smart Scopes (100 Scopes).
Also, the Ubuntu developers have decided to anonymize the images before serving them to the Dash, in order to respect the users’ privacy.
Now, Ubuntu 13.10 got a brand new scope, that will enable the users to shorten URLs directly from the Unity Dash, via the is.gd URL shorten service.
In this article I will show you how to install the Unity IS.GD Scope 0.1 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Unity IS.GD Scope 0.1 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander is easy. All you have to do is add the PPA to your system, update the local repository index and install the unity-scope-isgd package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:scopes-packagers/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install unity-scope-isgd
