You can disable artsd the same way you can disable anything else on a unix
system. If you only want people in group audio to run artsd, then you
need to chgrp audio artsd, and chmod o-x artsd. This assumes that
artswrapper drops root before running artsd. (Try it and see)
But remember that artsd does more than just shovel audio to a soundcard.
artsd isn't esd. There are valid uses that don't involve the sound card.
And if you're worried about cpu cycles, what's so special about artsd?
Sorting a large kmail folder by status can suck up a lot of cpu, too. :-)
