  Gstreamer 1.0 has missing core elements

Status in gstreamer1.0 package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  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.
