Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-phone-manager

I have gnome phone manager on Linux Mint 8 (ubuntu karmic based) and I have found a minor bug in the package.

Since I have Linux mint rather than Ubuntu, ubuntu-sounds is not installed by default and when I installed gnome-phone-manager, it did not install it as a dependency.
Thus when I recieved a txt message, there was no sound to alert me!
I worked this out after some time examining the source, installed ubuntu-sounds and it works fine.

However, I would not expect a "average" user to do this, and it is really anoying to tell gnome-phone-manager in the settings to sound an alert but have it not sound any alert.

I so I propose that the ubuntu package be updated so that it depends on ubuntu-sounds or sound-theme-freedesktop.
