    Hey everyone. I've been having trouble with searching on my Droid. I'm running Cyanogen Mod 6.0 and using QuickDesk with ADW Launcher.

    When I press the hardware search button on the homescreen, it does absolutely nothing. I get the haptic feedback, and long pressing it will give me voice search, but just a regular press gets no response.

    In other apps, such as Dolphin HD or Gmail, the search button works fine to bring up search for that particular app, but I remember at one point pressing it from the homescreen would give me a generic search. Now it does nothing.

    I'm having a similar issue with the search widget. When I press it, it clicks like a button and doesn't give me a keyboard. When I press it and type with the hardware keyboard nothing happens.

    I was having the same issue and this is what I did from terminal:

    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

    ln -s /data/app/com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox*.apk /system/app/GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk

    mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

    Reboot.

    Thank you very much! All is working now. I had to do something extra because the ln command kept telling me the file existed. I deleted the link in /system/app and also the .apk in /data/app. I then installed the .apk from here:

    After this I followed your terminal commands and all worked well after reboot!

    Thanks Again.
