[PySide] Phonon on Linux

I have two copies of Ubuntu (one running 13.10, one running 14.04) and
they're having different problems when I try to run a simple PySide program
which uses Phonon for music playback.

(1) The 14.04 version runs, but it won't play music. When I try, it gives
me this kind of error:

WARNING: bool Phonon::FactoryPrivate::createBackend() phonon backend plugin
could not be loaded

Windows has a phonon_ds94.dll file which apparently runs the Phonon
backend, and there are a few different Linux versions; I can't find any
file like those listed here in my PySide folder:

(2) The 13.10 version won't even get that far. Just running a program with
Phonon in it causes this error:

pyside phonon.so: undefined symbol: _ZN6Phonon17registerMetaTypesEv

I have no idea what to do about that at all.

If anyone can shed some light on one or either of these problems it would
be most welcome!
