Nice script... But I prefer to press alt-f2, and then type "wp:maillol" if I need to get the wikipedia article for that lemma. Or "qt:qstring" if I've forgotten once again what the correct way of converting an integer to a string is. Or "dict:espieglerie" for definitions of the word I always assumed meant "mirror" or "ggi:maillol" for images of sculptures by the master. In fact, I'm so used to it that I never keep a browser window open, at all.

Sure. But his approach is much more portable across workstation OS distributions than yours is. :-)

I tried that and a little window opened to type in, but hitting return said:
Failed to open URI "wp:maillol"

I'm using XFCE. What were you using?

KDE of course. KDE's krunner is amazingly powerful and useful.
