Perhaps in the laptop the toolbar "search buttons" is enabled and the toolbar "search+" hidden? Or perhaps the icon gets only changed after first switching an engine, or perhaps it may be related to locked default engine, no clue, just wild guessing. In the menu "Search Options", the first entry locks or unlocks the "default engine". Well possible that it's locked in the default KM profile, and if it's locked, my icon is locked too.
Anyway, those extended options in Search+ look very promising, and I wish that extension could be included by default with the browser. But don't hold much hope for any default changes soon, seeing how the privbar is still off by default since so many years, and the globe button in the default skin also still shows only the short version of the engines menu, missing the "set as default" and Configuration links :-/
Have a little improvement suggestion, quite hopeful that it could be realistic... The prob is that in my folder skins/default are already a bunch of macro pics, and throwing 50 new images inside makes me lose overview completely, just way too many to mix up in that big heap. First thought about renaming them all with a prefix "search_", but then did a bit experimenting, and found that it's actually possible to have subfolders in skins/default!
Now all my search plus pics are moved into the new subfolder "skins/default/SearchEngines"
Only left a copy of "search.bmp" in skins/default.
For this to work only needed to change two lines in the macro "Search+Icons.kmm"
pluginmsg(toolbars, "SetButtonImage", "&Search+, macros(SearchPlus), HOT,". $_SearchIcon."");
pluginmsg(toolbars, "SetButtonImage", "&Search+, macros(SearchPlus), HOT,". $_SearchFolder . $_SearchIcon."");
BTW, in the kmext version that I just downloaded today (link in first post here) there's only the german translation file, it's not in the de-DE folder but just in locales, and no other languages are included.
Hmm, and wonder if the KEM-Manager can actually restore the original search.kmm at uninstallation, or if it not rather deletes the backup, but no idea, haven't tried yet ;-)
