Bug#705075: ITP: googlizer -- search the web for the contents of your X clipboad
Owner: Tobias Richter <email@example.com>
This package that I really like was first orphaned and then removed,
without me noticing. In case an ITP is not the correct procedure at
this point, please advise.
The reason for removal was "RoQA; orphaned, better alternatives exist".
GNOME shell was named as the "better alternative". On LXDE there is no
parallel functionality as far as I am aware.
I am aware that upstream isn't active, but given that we are talking
about 105 lines of C code this shouldn't be a problem. There are no
known bugs, only the packaging needs to be updated.

Description : search the web for the contents of your X clipboad
This is a very simple and very handy utility that just spawns the
configured browser with a Google search on whatever you have in the
X clipboard (whatever you last selected). It's not even an applet,
just a program with a launcher that's nice to put on the panel - drag
it there from the menu. It also includes support for a command line
option -u/--url, to specify an alternative URL to which the search
should be appended before opening.
