Linux Beginner Search Engine (LBSE) is a Google Custom Search Engine Tailored To Search Specific Linux Sites and URLs Only. It weeds out many irrelevant links that we find in default google search. You can further narrow down search by selecting any of the 16 Refinement Filters and / or Date Range Filters.

In simple words LBSE gives Relevant Search Content by separating 'Class' from 'Mass'.

Please check out links below.

Added PCLinuxOS Wiki under Tips & Tricks

PCLinuxOS is not Debian / Ubuntu based. Unlike Debian / Ubuntu which uses .deb it uses .rpm package management system with apt-get. It's default desktop is KDE. PCLinuxOS has an excellent Wiki which will be very useful to anyone wanting to learn Linux and KDE. Though you will find articles which are exclusively applicable to PCLinuxOS, which you should ignore for applying it to Ubuntu based distros, it's wiki is well documented and very informative.
Created a New Page - News from Popular Linux Resources

This page aggregates feeds of popular Linux Distros and Blogs.

Update 21.1.2013

Added new Date Filters

For More details and screenshots, please visit here

New Filter / Refinement Cinnamon added

URLs added under Cinnamon

Except for the first URL which takes you to Cinnamon sub-forum, URLs are added under refinements Mint and Cinnamon

I have also changed Date range filters. The range now starts from April instead of January. I am not been able to make Filters like 'Since Last year' as I only know how to enter fixed date range and not dynamic range which automatically changes every day.

I am not active in any other Linux Forum since long time, hence I will focus on Mint while making any changes in LBSE.

Thank you @thinker . I will update CSE soon and will post about same in this idea, forums and tutorials.

@sunewbie I really appreciate your work. I would recommend you to include include tutorials from website "" . I personally use Cyberciti and Sudobits tutorials as they are easy, elaborated and works 100%. Sudobits you have already included and also check tutorials from and include it in search if you find it useful.

Here are some examples:

Thank you @bluXrider .
This is for everybody. I only coined the idea. It is only useful if it is used. Anybody, who has technical knowledge, wishes to modify CSE then I would be happy to share authorship. It is even made sticky on forums.

I would like to thank mint community and the mods, that they are very lenient. CSE contains links to another sites other than mint, still they have appreciated this effort.

This is a nice little project. Looks like its under consideration and a new resource for the mint users. Congrats @sunewbie it a win-win situation.

Nice job on the research and the posting.

Thumbs-up and a attaboy.....:)

No issues. No hurry. Thank you @oscar799 for considering this idea :)

Marking it as Considered means a dev will look at it - but this may take a while
