Bug Description

[Impact]
Without this patch, the "Sound Settings..." button in the volume indicator applet in LXPanel does nothing in a Lubuntu 17.04 install because gnome-control-center is not installed by default. This is a bug and a regression from the past Lubuntu release that we should aim to fix.

[Test Case]
On a Lubuntu 17.04 install, left click the volume indicator applet in LXPanel and click "Sound Settings...", it should open pavucontrol. Instead, it just does nothing.

This patch should make pavucontrol open.

[Regression Potential]
There is a very low regression potential. The only reason for this to regress would be if the environment variable (DESKTOP_SESSION), currently set at "Lubuntu" on a default Lubuntu install, changes. This would require an underlying change to another package which should not be changed in a stable release (there's no reason to change it anyways).

[Original Description]
- I click on the default "sound" icon (provided by the sound menu of the indicator applet)
- Menu with volume control, music player etc. opens.
- I click on "Sound Settings"
- Nothing happens. (I expect pavucontrol (or whatever) to be started)

15:23 <rbasak> To avoid future version string gymnastics if a Xenial SRU is needed.

15:24 <rbasak> I'm taking a break, then have a meeting. I'll sort it, though it may be later.
