I'm using Fedora 16 and GNOME 3.2.

When I search in the gnome-shell dash overview and press enter, I am redirected to a "Hello" wiki page. How can I redirect it to a Google search page instead?

First, remove the Wikipedia search provider:

rm /usr/share/gnome-shell/open-search-providers/wikipedia.xml

Then, restart gnome-shell:

Press Alt + F2 and type r and press enter.
