As far as I can see Debian (and thus probably also Ubuntu) only ship the
"standalone" Phonon package, i.e. Phonon 4.2. You can see that in the
package description, the source package is not "Qt" but "Phonon". So
basically you're doomed unless you also use Ubutu's PyQt4.4 packages. In
that case you can just go to the maintainers and tell them to fix this
(or disable the PyQT4.4 phonon support).

Yeap this is a big mess and its not just PyQt/PyKDE suffering from
