I don't use KDE, but my guess would be that artsd is running as a sound

these sound servers are running.

I am going to assume it has something to do with that ut2004 uses
OpenAL. I use artsd in KDE (if they are similar or anything I do not
know much about either of them and have not been able to find much).
You should try stopping artsd and then running ut2004. Have a look in
the /etc/init.d/ directory for a start/stop script for artsd. You
should, as root, try something like this:
If ut2004 now works, you can either start/stop arts every time, or do a
google to see if you can pass an argument to ut2004 to run through artsd.
