Bug Description

phonon-backend-gstreamer support both alsa and pulseaudio modules. But ubuntu deb package has hardcoded dependency on gstreamer0.10-alsa. Instead it should depends on: gstreamer0.10-alsa | gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio

With above dependency it is not possible to uninstall gstreamer0.10-alsa and use pulseaudio gstreamer module always as default. pulseadio is used as ubuntu audio solution for a long time, so there is no need to force everybody to use alsa output when pulseaudio working.

[Test Case]
Try to remove gstreamer0.10-alsa package when gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio and phonon-backend-gstreamer are installed

---------------
phonon-backend-gstreamer (4:4.7.0really4.6.3-0ubuntu2) saucy; urgency=low

  * Add gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio as alternate dep for gstreamer0.10-alsa
    as phonon gstreamer actually supports either. (LP: #1154630)

Can you backport this small change also to older supported ubuntu releases?

Actually you can do that as well. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates should outline the proper procedure.

That being said, the issue doesn't have impact to warrant the effort from our POV unfortunately.

Uploaded to precise-proposed awaiting approved by ~ubuntu-sru

It will then need a confirmation that the package in precise-proposed works

TEST CASE:
try to install phonon-backend-gstreamer with gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio and not gstreamer0.10-alsa
