the problem will be that kde is using the sound server. go kde, such a nice piece of kit. either set quake to use the arts server if possible or i think you might be able to run it via an arts wrapper program, but i couldn't tell you what it's called as i think KDE is the devil incarnate... alteranttively if you try a different light wieght window manager like blackbox then dsp will be availble all the time ideally.
