I was testing Cinnamon in a virtual machine, and I noticed I was unable to launch Cinnamon Control Center.

Here is the output I got in command line:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/cinnamon/cinnamon-settings/", line 2, in <module>
from bin import util
File "/usr/share/cinnamon/cinnamon-settings/bin/", line 3, in <module>
gi.require_version('GSound', '1.0')
File "/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/gi/", line 126, in require_version
raise ValueError('Namespace %s not available' % namespace)
ValueError: Namespace GSound not available

Additional info:
* cinnamon-control-center 5.4.0-1

Steps to reproduce:
Just install Cinnamon and try to launch control center.

Fix: installing gsound.
