Starting noatun from a console/terminal gives the following message:

mcop warning: user defined signal handler found for SIG_PIPE, overriding
WARNING: Couldn't instanciate artsobject Noatun::Session. (This is normally caused by a broken package or compiling kdemultimedia in a --prefix different from arts.  It may also be from two conflicting packages, so uninstall every arts/artsd package you have installed and try againe.
ERROR: KUniqueApplication: DCOP communication error!

Both arts and kdemultimedia packages were recompiled from source and the problem persists.  Both packages are from the rc3 ftp directory so shouldn't conflict.
