Hi George - thank you so much, your solution worked a treat. I did
some apt-cache searches to see what other stuff I'd gotten, but
didn't even think to look for alternatives for the phonon backend
I added -xine, removed -gstreamer, restarted kde and traverso and
qjackctl work perfectly. I'm confident the other apps will work (or
at the very least, it'll be much easier to fix problems).
