Sometimes, when no sound card and/or speakers are available, it can be handy to use PC internal speaker for notifications. Command-line interface to this feature can be installed with Pacman.

# pacman -S beep

By default, beep command can be run only root, but other users can be allowed to run it also, by changing permissions of the beep command.

# chmod u+s /usr/bin/beep

While many people are happy with the traditional beep sound, some may like to change its properties a bit. The following example plays slighly higher and shorter sound and repeats it two times.

# beep -f 5000 -l 50 -r 2
