On the desktop computer start Controlcenter and enable in Sound -> Sound Server
the items:

	enable network transparency
	exchange security and reference info over the X11 Server

and apply (to restart artsd).  Now slogin -X to you laptop and

	echo GlobalComm=Arts::X11GlobalComm > ~/.mcoprc

	artsdsp xmms	# or use the xmms' artsplugin

etc. works over the network.

No, see above, but, e.g.,  'artsplay  file'  will only work if 'file' is on the host
running artsd and not on the local host.  A fix is one of the top 3 items for
KDE 2.3 ;)

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
