I have noticed that occasionally my computer will get very slow. Especially web browsing and even typing. For instance, I type a sentence faster than it puts it on the screen and I can sit and wait for several seconds as it finishes typing my sentence. I checked the process monitor and found that "artsd" was eating up about 50-60 percent of my cpu. Probing further, I found that "artsd" is the "arts" daemon and (I think) has something to do with sound. Is artsd the problem here? Or is it likely something else like memory? What will happen if I kill the artsd process?

artsd is a sound server used by kde3 and its applications. I has been problematic for a while and afaik it is unmaintained now. This site seems to have a fix, disabling it might be quicker Tongue
