This bug was fixed in the package sugar - 0.82.9-1ubuntu1

sugar (0.82.9-1ubuntu1) jaunty; urgency=low

  [Alessio Treglia]

  * Merge from debian unstable (LP: #318102), Ubuntu remaining changes:
    - Added /usr/share/activities/ to the search path to work around issue
      with the packaging of the activities. This can be dropped when
      the activities are fixed.
    - Add the sugar-activities package back for people upgrading from Hardy.
      Should be kept until after next LTS.
    - Actually install things in to the sugar package.
    - Add 2005_look_in_usr_share_activities.patch to debian/patches/series.
  * Added gstreamer0.10-alsa on sugar Depends field (LP: #317462).

** Changed in: sugar (Ubuntu)
       Status: Confirmed => Fix Released

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” source package in Ubuntu: Fix Released
Status in “sugar” source package in Debian: Unknown

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.
