JuK without arts?
I'd like to avoid arts as it tends to get in the way of other, non-KDE
programs doing audio output. And, besides, I really don't need most of
what it does. The only KDE sound app I'm using is JuK and that one
offers to output to akode or gstreamer instead. In both cases, though,
the results are pessimal. With akode output, JuK eats the CPU, but at
least it works. With gstreamer, I don't hear anything, but JuK runs
through the tracks at 10 times the speed.
