Bug #1208204 - "indicator-sound no longer functions with xfce4-indicator-plugin"

Hello Richard, as I understand from the meetings we have held , if there is
enough need of it our developers can make a fix through the backport

It is very sad that we have this issue in first place, but control over
sound was available and lots of tutorials on how to fix it where also
available, if users would abandon just for this cause there is no much else
we can do. They would not want to use the backport channel either.

In any case the fix for the plugin indicators will be included in 14.04 and
it will be an LTS, so that would be the recommended solution to anyone,
just wait a few months
