Near as I can tell that should be just the same as plugging a microphone in. 
No? It should just play through. Perhaps you need to fiddle with the inputs in 
the kmix dialogue. Also, perhaps you need to fool it into 'recording' in order 
to hear the input. Not sure what app -- perhaps that KDE sound recording tool 
could do the job - record to dev/null or something. Sorry, the more I type the 
less I realize I know about it :)

Shutting up now.
