QuickTip: Turning Off the Beep on Ubuntu

Posted on Wednesday, April 9, 2008


If you are getting irritated with the beep sound on Ubuntu when you are working on the terminal window then there is an easy way to turn that off.

Just blacklist the pc speaker.


Goto /etc/modprobe.d

sudo gedit blacklist

In this add the following line

blacklist pcspkr

Now when you restart the system you would not get the annoying beeps again.
