I'm having trouble getting third-party apps (Realplayer8 in particular) to
work properly under KDE. As a non-ROOT user, any attempt to get RP8 to play
video stream gets 'Audio device in use' error.

The only solution I've found is to disable aRTs sound system. This allows
RP8 to work properly but of course turns off all system sounds.

Does anyone else have this problem? can anyone suggest another solution
which will allow me to have system sounds and audio from RP, VMWare etc etc.

Currently installed:

Thanks for your help
