    Run
    Code:
    XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=GNOME gnome-control-center
    to get the GNOME version.

    It is there in Raring Ringtail development version. It is moved to the bottom of the sound utility in Ubuntu. Whereas it is at the top in Gnome Remix.

    Thanks Jeremy but shouldn't I put the XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=GNOME bit in ~/.bashrc or some other config file to make it permanent ?

    But you will likely break heaps of things if you set it globally like that.

    I understand you want to run a normal Unity environment but activate the gnome sound manager rather than the Unity version? Well then just edit the corresponding desktop file and add that environment variable (e.g. http://askubuntu.com/questions/14496...n-desktop-file).
