Unneccesary conflict with gnome-audio

Bug #343288 reported by dstar on 2009-03-15
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ubuntu-sounds (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-sounds

ubuntu-sounds conflicts with gnome-audio; it's not immediately obvious why this is the case, as the only common file is /usr/share/sounds/card_shuffle.wav, which also happens to be the only file which ubuntu-sounds places directly in /usr/share/sounds/.

This wouldn't be a huge problem were it not for all the examples which assume you have gnome-audio installed (e.g., all the examples in /etc/pulse/default.pa point to files in gnome-sounds.

Does ubuntu-sounds really need to conflict with gnome-audio?

If it does in fact need to conflict, it might be a good idea to add a readme explaining why, so that other people aren't confused.

This conflicts-line also caused some problems in bug 446568:

It would indeed be very nice if ubuntu-sounds and gnome-audio was disjoint and installable in parallel.

This bug was fixed in the package ubuntu-sounds - 0.12

ubuntu-sounds (0.12) karmic; urgency=low

  * Drop card_shuffle.wav as its not used by anything any more.
  * debian/control: Remove conflict against gnome-audio as ubuntu-sounds no
    longer has any of the same files. (LP: #343288)
  * Import some sounds from the freedesktop sound theme needed for empathy
    notifications. (LP: #400485)
  * debian/copyright: Updated to cover newly added sounds.
