Most of you probaly already know how to do this, but I hope this helps someone.
Usually you can just navigate to the webpage of your preferable search engine, click the hamburger icon on the bottom right, go to Settings, tap “Search on” and tap to install the search engine you want. I guess this method works on almost any search engine.
However, in my case this didn’t work, since I wanted to set Presearch as my default search engine.
SETTING PRESEARCH AS YOUR DEFAULT SEARCH ENGINE
This could be done in number of ways, but I show you the way I found most comfortable:
On your PC:
- Go to this Presearch site.
- Save the page as .xml to eg. your Downloads folder.
Connect your phone to your PC via USB and select Media Tranfer (MTP) mode. Copy or cut the file and save it in the Downloads folder of your phone. You could also use SSH for this.
Now open the terminal app on your phone or connect your PC to your phone via SSH.
- Go your Downloads folder
- Move the file to the correct folder and rename it to presearch.com.xml
mv opensearch.xml /home/defaultuser/.local/share/org.sailfishos/browser/searchEngines/
- Restart the browser, go to Settings, tap “Search on” and choose Presearch
- You are good to go!
