As of 15 April 2009 this is still a current problem.

I recently started with a fresh Ubuntu 8.04 distirbution.
I am new to Ubuntu (old hand at squeak on a Mac).

I have described my problems on the squeak-dev list starting here.

Other recent posts can be found here by searching for Ubuntu in the title.

I have done enough experimentation with the problem to discover some

However the problem itself needs to be solved for the squeak
distribution and the vm distributed with it.

So questions:

When I ask Add/Remove to search all available applications for "squeak"
what package does it find and where is that package located.  That is
the location and the package that needs fixing.

The fix for sound is to include the missing plugins 
vm-sound-OSS  and
vm-sound-ALSA (if is spelled that right).

That is the difference between the etoys distribution and squeaks that
affects sound.

The other question I have is 
How can that be fix NOW?

This is a blocking level problem not only for squeak but also for
