linphone gui has no dialpad if Sway+xWayland is used

Bug Description

When Linphone is installed a system that uses Sway & Xwayland (instead of Gnome), the app launches with no way to dial a phone number. There is no dialpad, just a field where the SIP account of the other party can be entered. The contacts form also omits phone number from the fields, so there's no way around the missing keypad.

There is also no man page and no documentation in /usr/share/doc/, which I believe fails the minimum required quality standards of Debian and Ubuntu.

Note that some Ubuntu users who have no issue reaching a keypad see this screen:

but version 4.4.21 shows something much different.

The attached image shows what Linphone 4.4.21 looks like -- the defective version.

i was able to simply enter a phone number in the search field, and it worked. So the UI is not broken.

There is still a bug here though: no man page.
