My laptop beeps three times during the resume from hibernation. How can I disable this beeping. I use CentOS 5.3. Interestingly, this issue did not occur when I used CentOS 5.2 on the same laptop last year.
I got a problem with a Dell Latitude E5500. I can not disable the hardware beep after the gdm3 login screen has been loaded. All alsa beeps and system sounds are disabled and/or muted. I also tried setterm -blength 0, xset -b in startup scripts. They disable terminal-beeps, but not the halt or the gdm login beep. I tried wasting around with the gconftool, but nothing happened. It is an annoying sound. If you use, init 0 to shut down, no beep comes up.
Each time the PC boots and I pop in the Debian DVD into the DVD tray, it emits a blaring sound. I know the sound is emitting from the speaker inside of the PC but short of pulling it out or disable it via the BIOS, can I disable it in any other way as no sounds are heard when I boot with say Fedora, Ubuntu, etc?
I've used the following script here: [URL] to upgrade Alsa to 1.0.21 in Ubuntu 8.04. Now whenever I run:
sudo shutdown -h <time> or sudo reboot from the terminal I get a rather annoying beep sound. What's even more annoying is if I use the shutdown command to specify a time I get a beep every 10 minutes or so. I've tried disabling the terminal beep in the terminal profile, disabling the beep in System/Preferences/Sound, adding "blacklist pcspkr" to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, and running gconf-editor from the terminal and setting /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/bell_mode to 'off' rather than 'on'.
I am trying to access the cvs; I issue following commands :
After several minute later.....
ssh: connect to host cvs.tuxbox.org port 22: No route to host cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)
I get above response. In past many occasion I access this cvs repository without any problem but now without any change in client (in my computer) the whole system kicking cvs command out altogether. I wonder what gone wrong suddenly? I manage to update the same repository using cvs update; never had any problem before in past.
Is any one came across such sudden change in cvs access.
I have to manage a publicly accessible computer, and people know the password and are willing to click just anything, that pops up and has a "yes"/"ok"/"i agree" button on it, just to make the message disappear. (yes, I hate their ignorance ...) As long as they can use the net, that is all they care about...
My question is, can I still get updates for Maverick without being prompted for upgrade to Natty? Also I would like to remove the button from Update Manager. Is there a simple way to do that?
From a scan with nmap,I saw that,on my desktop,3 services were visible,ssh(which I don't want to disable),rpc-bind and smtp.As far as I know rpc-bind and smtp aren't needed on a desktop pc(I don't plan on having a mail server,at least on this pc),but before disabling something I need,I am asking it here-do I need them for some vital service?I am running OpenSuse 11.
Regarding the gnome-panel in Ubuntu (64 bit).... I discovered some time ago that I wasn't the only one who routinely (every login) had their gnome-panel appear butchered, for which Alt-F2 then 'killall gnome-panel' would easily fix.
Having become impatient with this over the past 8 months, I decided I would automate the process and so cofiguring the startup applications seemed like a perfectly logical choice to me. Turns out I was wrong. After adding 'killall gnome-panel' to the startup applications not only does the panel fail to load altogether now, but Alt-F2 doesn't even work.
I tried Ctl-Alt-F1 and working with the graphics-free mode thinking I could somehow navigate to the startup apps config file and edit it, but I don't know where it is or how to edit it without logging in as root and I certainly don't know of any 'root password'.
I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 and now if I leave my computer inactive for 5 minutes it goes black and then I have to enter my password. This is really annoying when I am streaming videos or watching movies. I have gone through all the admin and preferences and can't find how to turn this off or even how to change the time for going into stand-by. I would expect it to be in the power management but it isn't there.
ubuntu 10.04. My computer is left on all the time. My computer's screensaver comes on 10 minutes after last keystroke. Which is fine. However, when I return to use the computer and disengage the screensaver, ubuntu ALWAYS requires my password to continue. How do I stop ubuntu from asking me my password everytime I wake my computer up?
I have a database created by an older program (not Access) that I need to open and retrieve information for my business. The manufacturer put a password on there so that only it's program could open it. I do not use that program, but it has information I need. Is there a way to find that password or circumvent the password altogether?
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.
I use Mythbuntu 9.10 as HTPC and I got where I can turnoff the computer using remote. But how can I get a "beep" to be played during shutdown? by this I would know the computer is shutting off - it is behind a glas door so I don't see if the led's turns off.
When I was using Windows XP, my notebook was beeping very loud when it was running out of power. Since I use Ubuntu it doesnt. I have tried kpowersave but it somehow cannot play ANY SOUNDS. Now I use default power management and it doesn't beep too. How can I fix it? Its quite important because I often forget to hook it up.
I have a HP Laptop with Ubuntu Hardy installed. The system beep makes rapid clicking sound at login window that slowly dissipate and clicking that, so far I can only fix by rebooting, when I play music, reboot after hibernating, and when waking up from suspend. I've turned the system beep off in System/Preferences/Sound but it doesn't do anything.
Every time I shut down my laptop, this loud beeping noise comes out of my computer. It's just one beep, but it's loud and annoying. This has been happening recently, and not from the start of installing Ubuntu to my laptop.
I'm running ubuntu 9.10 on a Dell XPS M1530. Sometimes i get a _VERY_ loud beep-sound, eg when i run out of battery or, the case that has me coming here when i'm working in a virtual terminal (tty1-6) and hit backspace once too often, that is, when the command line is actually empty.Not that big of a deal you might think, but, especially when you're wearing good (read: possibly loud) headphones the experience is that god damn unpleasant that i'd like to make sure it won't happen again.Oh and well, just hitting mute (in gnome, which doesn't have a lot to do with tty1 anyways) won't do the job.
I like the system beep because I can tell checkgmail to beep when an email comes, that way my speakers don't have to be on.Anyways, I did a fresh install of Karmic the other day. Something is being weird with me when I try to re-enable the beep. Karmic blacklisted pcspkr in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf . Here's what happens:I leave "blacklist pcspkr" in blacklist.conf and restart. I do "sudo modprobe pcspkr" and then "beep", and it beeps. Good.
Then I comment out "blacklist pcspkr" in blacklist.conf and restart. I do "beep". Nothing. I do "sudo modprobe pcspkr" and then "beep". Nothing. I do "lsmod | grep pcspkr". It's listed there as it should be. I check with "sudo grep pcspkr /var/log/dmesg" and find no errors.
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.
I am using anaconda + ks.cfg to install Linux. In my case installation does not require any actions from me and there is no need to sit next to PC but it takes some time so I would like to hear some loud sound at the end of the process (e.g. something similar to result of echo -e "a" command) but I cannot find appropriate place in ks.cfg to add thing like this
just installed Lucid 64-bit. everything running smoothly including the sound except no system beep from PC speaker. system beep is enabled in system -> preferences -> sound. What else can I try? I'm dual booting with Hardy and system beep works fine in Hardy.
I tried to follow the instruction here: [URL]. But I failed at step 3 because there is no dropdown box on the linked page. One test command I found online returns errors: cat /dev/sndstat Sound Driver:3.8.1a-980706 (ALSA v1.0.20 emulation code) Kernel: Linux mary 2.6.30-bpo.2-686 #1 SMP Fri Dec 11 18:12:58 UTC 2009 i686 Config options: 0 Installed drivers: Type 10: ALSA emulation Card config: HDA Intel at 0xf3300000 irq 22 Audio devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG Synth devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG Midi devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG Timers: 7: system timer Mixers: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG
I've been using my girlfriend's Mackbook Pro and really like the beep sound when pressing backspace at a command prompt and really would like to have it on my ubuntu. However, I've checked "Terminal bell" option in the profile settings, but there is still no beep sound. What am I missing here?
Is there anywhere I can check what is causing this loud system beep or a way to fix this?? I really don't know where to start on this issues. Possibly restart log files but not sure where they're located.
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.
after installing linux mint 7, I have been getting one beep on shutdown, a google search on this came back as a ram problem...but then i ran across a bunch of posts on ubuntu forums about one beep on shutdown, with an older version of ubuntu, grep does return some paramter errors, but in the mint bug report page those are listed as : benign ignore. it doen't bother me in the least, as long as it isn't a warning of impending hardware failure.
