I do not believe you need it. I am running XMMS under KDE with no arts
plugin without any problems at all.
You don't *need* it, but xmms will lock the sound-device while playing and
thus hindering kde-apps using it. One solution is to use vchans, but it sound
*awfull* with my HW. An arts-plugin to xmms would be really nice, but I never
got the plugin working apart from crashing everythin IIRC.
You can start every sound application with a preceding "artsdsp".
So e.g. call xmms with
artsdsp xmms &
This will wrap the xmms sound to the arts daemon, without blocking.
