On a debian server, I see artsd is running, I don't understand why. It's not my fault.

Is there some explication / usage to run a sound daemon on a server ?

~/ ps xf    
 8300 ?        S      0:00 sshd: web@pts/1  
 8301 pts/1    Rs     0:00  \_ -zsh
 8691 pts/1    R+     0:00      \_ ps xf
25415 ?        S     18:43 /usr/bin/artsd -F 10 -S 4096 -s 60 -m artsmessage -l 3 -f

Wikipedia has a pretty informative article about arts.

I'd pull up aptitude, find arts (I'd expect it under Installed Packages / Sound / main), and see if any installed packages depend on it. If there aren't any, it should be safe to remove.

Could have something to do with VoIP.
