This would be my next (and last) chance, as I need to switch
off something called "externel something" or so, but all other mixers
I have tried so far do not handel this switch, except kmix.
So that's probably my last chance to get my vinyl into this computer.

And anyway: If it isn't possible to just run a kde app without beforehand
starting a bunch of servers (I have read about some further, which might 
be needed), then I am really a bit "upset" of kde.

As the -dopcserver switch is already standard to all kde apps, then
shouldn't it be standard to have something like "-dcopserver none"
to switch it off, for any unforseable situations like this one?

Wouldn't it be better to use a commandline mixer like alsamixer?

DCOP handles it transport through the ICE library, which might be able to 
handle remote connections as well. However I guess DCOP registers a local 
connection, i.e. libICE creates a unix socket, very likely for security
