I don't see any mention of the jack modules in the PA verbose output there.

As no other sinks are available (udev-detect is run and detects your
alsa cards, but as jackd is running and has the cards open already, it
correctly reports the alsa devices as "busy" and thus doesn't create
sinks/sources for them directly), the "dummy output" is automatically
loaded but obviously as the name suggests, the sound effectively goes to

Can you post the error messages you get from and the commands you use to
load the jack modules (basically step 4 in your list)?

That should help to debug further.

For the benefit of yourself and Tanu, the screens in Phonon should look
a little like the screenshots here: http://pulseaudio.org/wiki/KDE
