Then there is only one last possibility: Change the settings of arts, so
that it unloads itself after x seconds of no usage and make x as small
as possible. This can be done using the KDE Control Center or via
commandline when starting artsd.

If that doesn't work for you you'll have 2 more options, which are not
that good: 1. Disable arts as long as you need muse
2. Use another program instead of muse.

Oh I see it is QT-Based, then it shouldn't be to difficult to implement
an interface to arts, but that has to be done by a real programmer.


Everything that you know is wrong, but you can be straightened out.
