I'm using ubuntu oneric with empathy and gnome-shell When I use empathy with unity, I receive a notification sound every time someone send me a message. But When I use empathy with gnome-shell, I only receive a visual notification on the bottom-center of the screen, without any sound.

Does anyone know why this is happening?


I was able to get sound back by reinstalling sound-theme-freedesktop and ubuntu-sounds package:

sudo aptitude reinstall sound-theme-freedesktop ubuntu-sounds

Then restart empathy, everything works.
