Bug Description

Binary package hint: asoundconf-gtk

Dear developers,

When I installed asoundconf-gtk package and try launch, I see following error message in gnome-terminal:
hammera@hammera-laptop:~$ asoundconf-gtk
sh: /usr/bin/asoundconf: not found
You need to make sure asoundconf is active!
By default, asoundconf's configuration file is ~/.asoundrc.asoundconf
and must be included in ~/.asoundrc. Open this file to make sure it is!
hammera@hammera-laptop:~$

This files missing default with my Lucid system, and my friend confirming this problem on Ubuntu 9.10. I think default asoundconf command removed since Karmic.
When I put my Jaunty system the /usr/bin/asoundconf Python script, asoundconf-gtk is launch correct, and I see the awailable sound cards, I sending a screen shot how can look this application when /usr/bin/asoundconf command is awailable.

Bug #376024 "alsa-utils missing asoundconf" is WONTFIX, so the resolution for this bug should probably be "remove asoundconf-gtk package".
