I cannot find any option to set the default search engine, either in Epiphany preferences or in gconf-editor.
Can anyone explain how this change has occurred or how I might get back to having Google as my default search engine?
I am using Debian Lenny 5 and Epiphany 2.22.3
Many thanks for any help.
Setting the search URL for the location bar (keyword search)
For Epiphany 2.30 and later, you can change the search engine by editing the /apps/epiphany/general/url_search gconf key.
I don't know anything about Epiphany. I use Iceweasel, but instead of setting a default search engine, I set google as my home page.
you can open a tab, type in about:config and hit enter ...

Epiphany - For v3 and newer, there are at least two ways to change the default search engine. 1. using dconf-editor edit: org > gnome > Epiphany > keyword-search-url 2. from command line use this one-liner: GSETTINGS_BACKEND=dconf gsettings set org.gnome.Epiphany keyword-search-url https://duckduckgo.com/?q=%s. For older versions, go to > Menu > System Tools > Configuration Editor (or "gconf-editor" in the console). Drill down to key /apps/epiphany/general/url_search and overwrite the key with your ddg version of choice, e.g. https://duckduckgo.com/?q=%s for the SSL version (making sure to put the %s part at the end after the ' = ' symbol).
