Don't know if there is such a solution. Arts is a so called
Sound-Server, wich mixes different sound streams into one that is send
to the dsp-Device. This can be created via ALSA, which only is a driver
package for various sound cards.

A solution for the problem could be artsdsp, which should be installed
together with arts. It makes the program run with artsdsp think that it
has access to /dev/dsp, but really it sends the sound to arts. AFAIK it
works with most programs.
