Yes, it uses arts, but with kcontrol -> Sound System -> autodetect I want it 
to use the Arch default and work right out of the box. That means happily 
working together with pulse which it does fairly well at. With the default 
Arch sound config, you have the following running with tde:

  3390 ?        Sl     1:16 /usr/bin/pulseaudio --start
  3400 ?        S      0:00 /usr/lib/pulse/gconf-helper
  3685 ?        S      1:56 /opt/trinity/bin/artsd -F 10 -S 4096 -d -s 60 -m 
artsmessage -c drkonqi -l 3 -f

Is there anything that can be adjusted regarding these running processes that 
could eliminate the delay?
