Talk:Disable PC speaker beep

From ArchWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

I added this section to my bashrc (although it never really worked in my configuration).

In console You can add this command in /etc/profile or a dedicated file like /etc/profile.d/disable-beep.sh (must be executable): setterm -blength 0

However, the code remained in a test section of my local config. Earlier this month after an util-linux update, bash started complaining. Here's a post with a similar error.

Add 'enable' settings, too?

It's good to have this page. Please, add the 'enable beep' settings, too. --T.ask (talk) 23:13, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

The beep is enabled by default, though, or do you have a specific issue in mind? -- Alad (talk) 03:39, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
How to revert settings is important. --T.ask (talk) 10:39, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Adding startup/boot sound

From Xfce. Trivial, but possibly useful if we go with the above suggestion. -- Alad (talk) 20:12, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Arch does not have a built-in startup sound configuration tool, but there is a workaround by adding the following command to your Application Autostart settings:

aplay /boot/startupsound.wav

The file location and filename can be whatever you want, but naming it descriptively and putting it in /boot keeps things tidy.
