Steps to Reproduce:
rpm -q arts
I can't start arts either. I don't know if it is the same problem the OP had.
[jks@jks-desktop ~]$ artsd
*** PULSEAUDIO: Unable to connect: Connection refused
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device: default can't be opened for playback (Connection refused)
[jks@jks-desktop ~]$ rpm -q arts
Joseph, you're having a separate problem (arts not crashing but pulseaudio not
being able to open/initialize the audio device).
Do you have kde-settings-pulseaudio installed? If not, you need it.
Thanks, installing kde-settings-pulseaudio solved my problem. It should
probably be required for all kde installs.
fwiw, it's the default (ie, included if you 'yum groupinstall kde-desktop'), but
not required so that it's optional (ie, folks can opt-out of pulseaudio support
if they so choose).
The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present. Since there have not been any
updates to the report since thirty (30) days or more since we
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in the current Fedora release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.
Setting status to "CLOSED INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
release and can provide the information previously requested,
please feel free to reopen the bug report.
Thank you in advance.
Note that maintenance for Fedora 7 will end 30 days after the GA of Fedora 9.
