> Bug description:
> * The indicator menu for sound not displaying is a major user
> interface failure.
> * The justification for making this upload is that the number of
> workarounds proposed are actually damaging to system integrity as well
> as allowing for shifts between desktop environment.
> * This patch resolves a conflict that will allow the menu to display.
> [Test Case]
> * Install stock Xubuntu 13.10. The indicator menu for sound should
> fail to display when clicking on the sound icon.
> [Regression Potential]
> * There is a risk of further conflict between the gtk2 and gtk3 sound
> indicators. In previous releases the two versions were almost identical but
> this changed in Saucy (this is also the reason -gtk2 broke). In particular,
> there is a potential for the two indicators to use gsettings configuration
> keys in different ways which may lead to problems. Testing should be done
> on systems with both Unity and Xubuntu installed.
> * While Xubuntu is working on landing gtk3 indicators for 14.04 the
> landing of such for 13.10 now would be a massive change requiring approval
> by potentially the Technical Board.
> [Other Info]
> * In general Xubuntu users have been distressed over not having the
> indicator sound menu available which makes this an issue we would like to
> resolve expeditiously.
> * Xubuntu will need to adjust its website documentation slightly to
> note that users must select "Download updates while installing" during
> an installation from the LiveCD to ensure this fix is picked up to
> avoid a broken interface experience.
