Cut that. aRts isn't maintained anymore. KDE is heading for another solution 
and currently (kde3.4) half of the players in kde have their own plugin 
system to support different soundservers / outputmethods to be independent 
from aRts...
It won't live longer than kde 3.5, which will hopefully be the last kde3.x.

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the 
Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be 
replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
