    No Amazon results in Unity

    As a regular user of amazon, I was quite eager to try out the Amazon search function in dash. I've got the latest beta of 12.10 with all the latest updates, but I'm not seeing any amazon search results in dash. I'm only seeing results from the ubuntu One Music store. Are search results disabled becouse I'm located in Norway? Despite being in Norway, I regularily purchase books from amazon, and would love to search for stuff in the dash. Any ideas?

    Try using the directional arrow on the bottom right of dash. Some Amazon offerings should appear by default and then try searching.

    When you select a book image from dash the default browser will open to that page.

    The privacy settings has online searches enabled. But no amazon results. The home dash shows nothing other than whats on my system and ubuntu one music store. Expanding the arrow only shows additional ubuntu one music. If I go onto videos, I get results from headweb (a scandinavian video rental service), and a couple of hits from youtube and tedtalks, but no amazon.

    [EDIT] Looks like the Headweb source could use some kind of adult filtering option

    The top row in post three look like the default results I had from Amazon on 10-5.

    They look similar yes, but they are all links to either youtube or headweb.
