10 It is even more weird this add-on provides just a search engine! It's not as
11 if the add-on is related to a media player, or something you could expect it
12 might need to touch audio.
14 I tried it on a plasma desktop and I can replicate the problem. However, I
15 noticed if I go into Configure Audio Devices and select 'Analogue Stereo' and
16 then 'Analogue Stereo Duplex' back & forth, the audio starts playing again.
17 This is with a hard wired audio, no bluetooth.
19 Any idea what the difference is between the various StartPage add-ons? Is
20 StartPage to be trusted, anymore than all the rest mass surveillance
21 corporates?
