Plugger is a fine tool, but not very easy to configure on KDE3. I have yet to get Plugger to funnel the helper apps that need audio to route through KDE's Arts server. Mplayer, mpg123, and xanim all have problems playing sounds as the arts server locks up the audio unless these apps are launched via artsdsp. Granted, I am not all that familiar with the interaction of Plugger and Arts so I may have missed something in my pluggerrc file. However, I wonder how many others are having this issue as a Google search gave me little help.
