As you can see from my profile I am a Linux user.
Linux has 2 main browsers:
Konqueror for KDE
and
Firefox for Gnome

As you know there is a plugin to embed search capability for BGG in firefox: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/73295

I created a similar one for the konqueror browser (KDE), that is downloadable from http://www.massimilianodellarovere.eu/bgg/bgg.desktop

The file should be put in ~/.kde/share/services/searchproviders
then the bgg search engine should be activated from:

Konqueror window->Settings->Configure Konqueror->webshotcuts (the item whose symbol is "://")

Also.

While Konqueror is associated with KDE and does require much of the KDE support set to be installed, Firefox has no formal association with Gnome.

I run both and use neither KDE or Gnome.

I did not specify formal associations.
Only their existance.
