That looks like the solution! :-) Unfortunately, when I click Ok, KDE wants to restart the Arts daemon, and then, tragically, it complains dat /dev/dsp is busy... I think artsd just doesn't "free" the device when it is killed manually, and therefore it won't restart either. But I'll try it again on my next reboot, I think this may solve the problem! Thanks!
