beep-ubuntu-linux

If you make/type something wrong, the PC always emits a typical system beep. Unfortunately some times, this noise is very annoying and not always desired.

This problem can be solved with just a short command from Terminal Window:

Turn beep OFF:

terminal-beep-on-ubuntu
rmmod pcspkr

Turn beep ON:

If you decide you miss it, this will re-load it:

terminal-beep-off-ubuntu
modprobe pcspkr
