[xubuntu] pulseaudio applet is gone

I was having trouble playing sound on Xubuntu 12.04 (it worked for weeks then suddenly stopped), so I deleted pulseaudio and all of its related files. A reinstallation seems to have fixed the sound issue, but how can I re-add the applet? Thankfully I have a screenshot to help explain it:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
