Ubuntu :: Enabling Terminal Bell - Deactivated Or Muted

Apr 15, 2010

I've recently installed Xubuntu Lucid Beta2 on my new laptop. But I'm unable to turn the bell back on. The 'pcspkr'-module is removed from the blacklist and is loaded. However, 'alsamixer' doesn't show me any volume-options for the beep. However, 'echo -e "a"' still doesn't make a sound. I've installed the 'beep'-package, and it works, thus I am assuming that the hardware-bell itself does WORK fine. It's just deactivated/muted somewhere, and I can't find the option to turn it back on.

Ubuntu :: Can't Turn On Terminal Bell In Gnome-terminal Using Remote Screen Session With Irssi

Nov 6, 2010

I'm using 10.04, and gnome-terminal GNOME Terminal 2.30.2 . I have irssi running on screen session on remote host. And I've been struggling for quite many days to configure it to produce either visual feedback or ring terminal's bell when I receive a private message or one of those that are highlighted.

My compiz settings window in General tab has 'Audible bell' checked.

My GNOME terminal has 'Terminal bell' checked.

I also added 'set bell-style audible' to my ~/.inputrc

And I also tried to manually load pcspkr module into my kernel.

No of the above helped or at least I haven't been able to notice any difference.

I also used some commands for irssi to produce bell sign.

Fedora :: How To Change Volume Of Terminal Alert Bell

Oct 14, 2009

How do you change the volume of the terminal alert bell in F11? (the sound you hear when you press the tab button). I turned the sound all the way down and muted the "Alert volume" in System>Pref>Sound but I still get a deafening bell sound whenever I press the tab button.

Jul 27, 2010

I recently replaced (fresh install) Fedora 12 by 13. Surprisingly I noticed there is no log-in sound for Gnome and also when I use command line terminal there is no terminal bell in spite of the fact that I checked the "Terminal Bell" option in the EDIT --> Preferences menu! I checked the speakers are not mute, I can play music. Any idea how to fix it?

Debian Configuration :: Wlan0 Gets Deactivated While Login

May 13, 2010

From yesterday on, I am not able to connect my Laptop to my WiFi Router automatically when logging in to gnome desktop.

The following is the message found in /var/log/messages.

Its Lenny 5.0.4 and I can see my wifi LED ON till the gdm login page. After the login, while loading my desktop, the LED goes OFF and I have to restart the network-manager for enabling the wifi again. Why is this happening? Do I have to change the configuration settings in /etc/dbus-1/system.d/ to fix this. I really don't know what change needs to be done there and where.

The same day when this problem started while logging in I got an error message from nautilus. The screen-shot is attached with this mail. Does this error have anything to do with the network issue?

Ubuntu :: Maverick Fails To Load Grahical Display After NV Driver Deactivated / Solve It?

Nov 11, 2010

I am able to login to the system. code...

Are there any logs that you would like me to post?

I have tried reinstalling the NV display driver via "additional drivers" in the live CD, but they do not appear to be being retained on the HD version of Ubuntu. When I go back into the live cd the driver is not installed.

How can I switch the proprietary driver back on in the hard disk when I am running the live disk.

Is there a repair system program?

If not is there a way of forcing an upgrade on an upgraded system so that missing files are reinstalled?

If that does not work what should I do next to get the GDM to load?

Ubuntu :: Everytime Reboot The Sound Is Muted

Nov 27, 2010

I've been having some issues with my sound for a few weeks. Every time I reboot, my sound is muted. I have to open up alsamixer every time and unmute it manually. It is not the "master volume" that is muted but instead the "speaker" volume is the one that is muted. This started when i started up my computer and the ubuntu log-in sound started playing extremely loud. I quickly tried to turn down the volume while it was still booting and ever since then, i have been having this issue. Also, the volume control on my laptop no longer works, even after i adjust the volume with alsamixer. It still shows on the screen that the volume is being adjusted, but it does nothing. I hoped i explained this well enough for someone to be able to help me with this issue. Also, sorry if this issue has been posted before.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Shut Down With Sound Muted - Now It's Gone

May 24, 2011

I've seen loads of threads about this sound issue, and I've experienced/fixed it before (after HOURS of searching), but this time it's worse. I'm running Maverick. I accidentally muted my sound and shut down with it muted. Upon restart, no sound is present through headphones, speakers, anything. The sound card still shows up in the options. Sound also has been disabled on my LIVE DISC OF 11.04These sound problems are the absolute worst part of Ubuntu. I'm almost ready to jump ship back to...vista *shudder*

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Turn On System Bell / PC Speaker

Mar 2, 2010

This is for all of you who are having problems getting sound out of the PC Speaker, as far as getting the system beep or system bell. In Karmic (9.10), a change was made to get rid of the system beeps and disable the pc speaker. Unfortunately for people who liked (or more likely need) the beeps, the changes occurred in multiple places and are not that easy to find. The pc speaker and beeps were disabled in response to this bug. I believe there were other bugs dealt with here because not everything that was done seems to be covered, if that makes sense.

This bug was created in response, in hope of getting the beeps turned back on. This post by one of the developers has some pretty comprehensive instructions for getting the beep back on. I want to note right now, that I did not have to apply his patch to get the beeps back on where I wanted them. It may already have been included in an update, or was obviated by something else I did. I realize this is pretty fragmented, and you may or may not want or need to go as far as I did with this. When I get a chance to do a new clean install of Karmic (maybe in a vm or something) I intend to go back over these instructions and try to create a synthesis of them that should work for certain. If I can, I'll figure out a way to script it.

One other thing I should point out. I didn't get the bug where I had to reload the pcspkr module on every boot, so that must be fixed. (I did have to remove it from the blacklist so it would be loaded on boot, but I didn't have to kill and reload it or add it to rc.local like some people did in those descriptions). I also did not get the bug of an endless loop of beep sound or multiple beep sounds, but that only happened to people who followed the directions to change the system beep to another sound.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Microphone Won't Stay Muted - Karmic

Feb 5, 2010

I've got an asus a8js laptop and since installing karmic, the built in microphone is permanently on. Every once in a while I brush my finger of the mic unintentionally and it makes some mad feedback.

I've ruled out that this is caused by pulseaudio, the problem occurs when pulseaudio is off (pulseaudio --kill) and I've set .asoundrc to go straight through the hardware.

My first thought was to check alsamixer, but I muted (capture, mic, mic boost set to 0) it in there to no avail. Consequently, any time I move a slider (any one, PCM, mic, Front...) the microphone mutes for 3 to 15 seconds and then is suddenly live again.

Here's my .asoundrc


In all the soundcard works fine, it's just that the mic is always on and I can't seem to set it otherwise.

Ubuntu :: Getting No Sound From Audio Card (Muted Icon)

Feb 3, 2011

I've got no sounds from my audio card. I have established this knowledge by confirming it by using two separate sets of speakers. In addition, there is a weird muted icon in the top left corner. I've looked through the sound settings, including alsamixer, and I cannot find whats muted. Please see attached screenshot. As you can see, my output it muted, but the speaker is back (see a) in screenshot), not white like it normally is (see b) in screenshot). How to restore sound from my audio ports?

OpenSUSE :: How To Disable System Bell For All Applications

Sep 2, 2010

I've searched all over Google and searched the forums and I have not been successful in finding out how to disable the System Bell (Beep) computer-wide. It's annoying hearing this extremely loud "BEEP" when I hit backspace one too many times, even when my sound is muted. People look at me like I'm crazy. Even if I try to backspace a non-existent character in my Google Chrome browser, I am struck with a crazy Error Beep. Long story short, how do I disable the System-wide "System Bell" ("BEEP") permanently? I'm on OpenSuse 11.3 using the KDE 4.4.4 Desktop.

Slackware :: How To Turn On System Bell In XTerm

Apr 11, 2010

I'm trying to turn on the system bell (pc speaker) in xterm. I have the bell working in console (text mode, not under X), and with X running, even firefox can use the pc speaker (it beeps, when I enter a search term which is not found). Only xterm doesn't seem to work.

Here is my xterm config, and the xset command I'm trying to use to turn the bell on:
xterm*renderFont: true
xterm*faceName: Terminus
xterm*faceSize: 12

xterm*loginShell: true
!xterm*Geometry: 102x48+0+0
xterm*Geometry: 102x48
xterm*scrollBar: false

xterm*background: black
xterm*foreground: white
!xterm*highlightColor: red
xterm*charClass: 46-47:48

xterm*visualBell: false
xset b on
xset bell 100 1000 1000

If I run xterm with the +vb option, it doesn't help either (I'm testing it with printf "a"). What am I missing? How can I make xterm use my pc speaker as bell?
