Hardware :: Solution For Disabling Annoying PC Beep (Ubuntu)?

Apr 9, 2010

When in a virtual tty, Ubuntu has an extremely annoying audible beep alert to notify the user that he is trying to do something that can't be done. Say for instance, hitting the backspace key at the command prompt. The cursor can not back up from there, so the system issues out a loud obnoxious BEEP in response. I am in a virtual tty often, and have found myself on a quest to eradicate that annoying BEEP from my system, if it is the last thing I do. After trying several modprobe, and other solutions, that did not work, I have found a solution that does.

alsamixer has a setting for 'PC Beep' that can be muted, silencing all audible system complaints from a virtual tty.

It would be a pain to do this every time, so...

amixer is a command line interface to alsamixer. By placing the following command in my .bashrc file, I have solved my problem.

amixer set 'PC Beep' disable

Fedora :: Annoying Beep When Typing Break Ends On F12 / 13 - Turn This Off?

Sep 1, 2010

I have the typing break enabled through the keyboard preferences, and when the break ends, I hear an alarm beep (sounds like the alarm on a wristwatch) through my speakers.
For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to turn this off.

It did not always do this, but started when I upgraded my system to Fedora 12, and it persisted through to the upgrade to F13.

There are three computers in my office running F13, and mine is the only one that does this. I can find no trace online of anyone else having this problem.

Can anyone tell me how to turn this off?

I'm running Gnome 2.30.0 on Fedora 13 (x86_64)

Ubuntu :: Disabling The Low Power Beep On Installation?

Mar 11, 2010

It is extremely load and aggravating. My version 9.10. I am have no other issues with the internal speaker besides the low power beep. I have tried: blacklist pcspkr in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf (actually was already done in 9.10) in gconf-editor gone to apps gnome-power manager, unchecked low power notification

gone to sound preferences muted alert volume. If this was a desktop i would just physically disable the internal speaker, but i don't want to open up my laptop do to possible difficulty of reassembly.

Ubuntu :: Those Annoying File System Checks?

May 19, 2010

I have my Media Center running Ubuntu 10.04, and it's annoying to have that "Your disk drives are being checked for errors" message every so often. And ofcourse, as Murphy's law states, it usually happens when I'm in a hurry to quickly watch something.

Ofcourse, I can press 'C' (cancel) all the time. But I guess Ubuntu set up this file check interval for a reason, right? I was wondering if it's save to change the interval so it's less often. Or is it easy to configure the check to occur at SHUTDOWN? That's when most people don't care what the computer does anymore.

Also, although it's a pretty fresh install, any Ubuntu on my machine has never ever ever ever worked flawlessly and neither does this one. More often then not, on shutdown, the computer doesn't shut down but just sits there with a black screen or with the ubuntu logo. So I just power it off. Does this scenario make it unwise to tone down on the number of file checks?

Ubuntu :: How To Stop Annoying Deletion Confirmations

Jan 12, 2011

The solution given there -to edit settings via gconf-editor - worked fine.In Ubuntu.Now I wanna do the same thing in Lubuntu - the Ubuntu remix that uses LXDE instead of Gnome.I tried running gconf-editor but (duh) it's not installed because Lubuntu doesn;t use Gnome. How do I tell LXDE to quit asking for confirmation? I'd also like to have the option to just delete stuff right away, rather than it going into the trash file first.

Ubuntu :: Remove Annoying Drum Sound At Startup?

Jul 6, 2010

How do I remove that annoying drum sound from the login screen.I went to PREFERENCES -> LOGIN SCREEN, but there are no tabs or boxes for sound. Only options to determine who I want to log in.I tried GCONF-EDITOR, and drilled down to /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/settings-manager-plugins/sound/active and unchecked the active box, rebooted, but it still plays that stupid sound. And the box is unchecked if I check it! I've tried the solutions in the forum and nothing seems to kill that annoying sound.I'm still on 9.10 right now, since 10.04 has a nasty screen flicker problem.

General :: Need Music Player That Isn't Annoying

Jun 15, 2010

I've been ripping my CDs to digital for about 10-12 years, and for about 8-10 years, all my new purchases of music have been in digital form. My favored method of organizing my stuff has been by using subdirectories code...

It seems that every music program that has the ability to manage your music collection wants to use MP3 tags to do so. I severely do not want that behavior. I would like to be able to automatically create a library based on pathnames.

Winamp cooperates with my directory structure, but Rhythmbox / Songbird / Exaile seem to be hard-coded to just read id3 tags and operate according to that.

Ubuntu :: Bluefish Annoying Message - File Has Been Modified By Another Process

I'm using Bluefish on my laptop to modify files on my desktop web server. The machines are networked with samba. Every time I save the files, I'm prompted with this window that says: File has been modified by another process. It gives me the option to cancel or overwrite. It's the only program that does this. I can click on overwrite and that works, but it's pretty annoying.

Fedora :: Random And Annoying System Freezes In F13

Aug 7, 2010

I'm getting very random full system freezes with F13. The keyboard stops responding completely. Sometimes the mouse (and the mouse only) still works. I those cases, I can log in via ssh, kill kdm, and everything goes back to normal until the next freeze. However, in most cases, I have to do a hard reboot. Sometimes the system goes on for days without a problem, and sometimes it freezes 10 times in a day (It's in one of those days that the bug-screen saved me from flying out the window). I also had this problem on F12. I'm not sure if its video-driver related as both nvidia and nouveau experience this behaviour. In fact, I'm not at all sure what the cause may be.

Debian :: Kernel Annoying Bugs While Compiling?

Oct 9, 2010

this is my x-th attempt to compile the kernel on debian lenny. after solving the damn LGUEST issue, now i got an --append-to-version=-foobar issue?! damn... much time wasted, again. after make menuconfig and make-kpkg clean i start compiling with

Slackware :: Track Down The Cause Of An Annoying XFCE Behavior?

Jan 13, 2011

I'm using -current and XFCE 4.6.2 hasn't been playing very nice. Its menu has an odd behavior. AFAIK, XFCE's menu is automatically generated based on the .desktop files from /usr/share/applications and somewhere else when it comes to wine programs. The menu has an "Other" tab, which includes Gvim and, ever since I installed it, Civilization IV BTS.The problem is that sometimes this "other" menu just disappears after staying logged in for some time, like overnight. I was thinking that this had something to do with suspending to ram, but I don't think that's the case as I've been suspending over and over and the "other" menu just stays there.I don't know if someone else has noticed similar behavior so I'm not waiting for an answer as to what may be causing the issue. I'd like to know where I can start looking for the cause.XFCE masters, where can I start looking?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Annoying Noise When Video Is Played On Full Screen Mode

Feb 20, 2011

recently i installed ubuntu (gnome) 10.10. i'm lovin it but only thing is bugging me is this annoying noise whenever i try to see a video on web or using vlc. i m using dell inspiron 6400. IT has VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility X1400 My glxinfo outcome is :

HTML Code:

name of display: :0.0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI


now my main problem is whenever i change my visual settings from none to extra , i start getting noise on my usb headphone or even on my speakers especially if i play a video on full screen mode it become worse .. it starts constantly makeing buzzing noise. sometimes even when i minimize or maximize or scroll up down a window...

if i put the visual effects in normal mode i still get the noise on video playing full-screen mood but this is time bit low and on none mode i get the noise too but very low... so i m assuming there must be some problem with my vga card which is causing this chaos. unfortunately there is no driver for my graphics card dat ati supports on ubuntu, so i used gallium 3d project using this ppa https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/radeon .. graphics works fine now but this nosie is killing me ..

Debian Configuration :: Annoying Screen Artifacts Are Permanently Appearing?

Feb 4, 2010

every now and then there appear ugly artefacts on my screen. Until yesterday it happened every five to ten minutes; now it happens every few seconds. It is no fun to work with such a system, it is extremely annoying... The artefacts remember me on the artefacts you had 20 years ago when you overwrote an analog VHS-cassette a hundred times, except that the screen looks perfect between the moments the ugly artefacts are present. My notebook is a cheap Acer Extensa 5230E, exact specifications is being made public by my vendor: [URL]

user@host:~$ uname -r
(the same problem with the old kernel 2.6.30)

Here is some /var/log/messages output that might be useful:

Ubuntu :: Beep Command Does Not Work?

Jan 25, 2010

My beep command stopped working -- it does not beep. I think this happened when I upgraded to Karmic (but could have been earlier). I use the beep command to notify me of important events.

I tried looking in sound settings, and did not find anything suspicious. I also tried googling but most stuff just describes how to "disable the annoying beep". Lastly, I tried different software channels and repositories to find an alternative program to the beep command, but nothing happened.
