[Bug 1405001] [NEW] Gstreamer 1.0 has missing core elements


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

I wanted to test gstreamer's pipeline functions in command line using
Jono Bacon's tutorial. I thus ran

    gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location=mysong.mp3  ! decodebin !
audioconvert ! alsasink

And this error came up:

   ERROR: pipeline could not be constructed: no element "filesrc".

I dug a little through the google searches, and using gstreamer-
inspect1.0, I was able to list all the installed plugins. Amazingly,
*none of the coreelements plugins are present*.

Is there a way to fix this? Is there a packet that might have been
forgotten in the 13.10-14.04 update process?

PS: I have troubles with *all* the gstreamer-dependent application on my
14.04 install so this is probably related.

** Affects: gstreamer1.0 (Ubuntu)
