I wouldn't say 'depend' but much more 'recommend'; 'depend'
should only be used for _mandatory_ dependencies IMHO.

I would tend to agree, except that over 50% of configuration errors reported, regarding audio, is due to the lack of pavucontrol being installed at all and/or the user being aware that it needs to be invoked.

So, if it were installed from the get-go, and a dialog popped up during install time, asking if the user wants to configure audio NOW or do it later using the "pavucontrol" application? ...that would be really nice!

OTOH, that would just make installing Linux too user friendly. New users should learn VIM first. <cackles> Ric
