I have to answer my own question - in order to provide the most useful solution - and hopefully not just for me.

After logout and back in: the indicator-sound-switcher appeared in the panel and could be used for a while - then with some glitches. But it works. - Therefore, I can confirm that the installation method mentioned in the question works after all.

Only - as it seem made for Ubuntu, I would expect it to be buggy in Fedora and I would not recommend it after all, especially that I have found a very KDE specific alternative and a very obvious one - a KDE widget: Audio Device Switcher.

[Cannot upload images given my newbeness - I'll update this when I get my 60 points:)]

It doesn't look to well on the panel, but is great on the desktop, especially with the option "Show icons only" and resized to minimum.
