Arts is the kde "sound server". You don't need it unless you want to
hear all the beeps and system sounds. You won't be able to use any other
audio apps while arts is running so it is probably better to disable it.
I don't know much about arts so I don't know what the message means...

> I think that qjackctrl anyways disables arts when starting jack?

Used to, I don't know if the latest version does that. 

> I wonder if this has something to do with the slowness under jack??

What are the specs of your system?
