activate it the user must go to the Preferences window > Services > Find.

– After an update of services Tucan needs to be restarted.

===================
Tips & Tricks
=========

– Before running a new version, it’s recommended to remove the directory
/home/<user>/.tucan/ or C:Documents and Settings<user>.tucan if exists.
– The first time you run Tucan (without directory ~/.tucan/), the Preferences
window appears.
– Before running a service, it must be enabled in “Service Configuration” in
the Preferences window.

– Anonymous access to http://gigasize.com/:
– gigasize.com disallows checking links if an active link is already
downloading from this service.
