No problem, sorry - didn't know.

Huh, ok.

The only backends listed with 'apt-cache show juk' are gstreamer and
arts - perhaps that should be updated. What is the *other* backed? I
tried to play songs directly after installing juk and got no sound.
Installing gstreamer didn't help.

There is also no preferences dialog to choose the sound backend, and
the manual doesn't have any information either. So I'm a bit clueless
how to proceed.

Thanks again for the help.
