Needs dependency on gstreamer0.10-alsa
You received this bug notification because you are a member of Sugar
Team, which is subscribed to sugar in ubuntu.

Status in “sugar” package in Ubuntu: Fix Released
Status in “sugar” package in Debian: Incomplete

Bug description:
Binary package hint: sugar

Kubuntu (intrepid) doesn't have gstreamer0.10-alsa installed by default.

Without this, Sugar fails to launch, with the following in the traceback:
  File "/usr/share/sugar/shell/hardware/hardwaremanager.py", line 56, in __init__
    self._mixer = gst.element_factory_make('alsamixer')
gst.ElementNotFoundError: alsamixer

sugar needs to depend on gstreamer0.10-alsa to fix this for non-GNOME users.
