Debian :: Get Rid Of Annoying Beep Whenever Squeeze Finished Boot?

Jun 8, 2010

I'm using Debian Squeeze on my Presario CQ40-115AU. Whenever Squeeze finished boot (when the login screen appears), there a loud beep sound come out. The same sound also come out when rebooting/shutting down my laptop and this had never happened when I'm using Lenny. Where can I configure so the sound won't come out ever again.

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)

Debian Configuration :: Disable Gdm3 Startup Beep?

Jun 10, 2011

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.

General :: Disable The Beep That Emits From PC When Installing Debian?

Aug 30, 2011

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?

General :: Disable The Terminal Beep When Running The Shutdown Command?

Sep 3, 2009

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'.

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

fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-cpupmopt kernel_image kernel_headers
error log:
< ... snip ...>
H16TOFW firmware/edgeport/down.fw


EDIT: since this is debian specific and i used make -j5 etc. for # of jobs in other distros, is there an option on make-kpkg for that? && any chance for resuming?

Debian :: Screeches To A Halt When Xfering Files?

Jul 2, 2010

When i tranfer my files from my hdd to my external hdd debian seems to like to just completely freeze up and just sit there completely unresponsive. My hdd is a 7200rpm st320gb and the external is a 320(probably 5400rpm) toshiba usb 2.0 portable hdd. The system's Lenny with backports on iceweasel. Also this hasn't happened in Fedora, Ubuntu, or Windows. Thus far it seems to be a debian only related issue. Also i have no "safely remove/eject" option on my external so it's a bit like i'm just unplugging it as i hear it physically just stop spinning all at once instead of theother os' wherein i can slowly kill it off.

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:

Feb 4 04:27:17 host_system kernel: [ 233.292624] tg3 0000:02:00.0: PME# enabled

Debian :: Dist-Upgrades Halt With Comment Can't Respond To?

Jan 28, 2010

This n00b is having a weird situation during dist-upgrades that I've never seen before. It's puzzling my more-experienced pals in an irc channel, too.

Sometimes--not every time--while running a dist-upgrade outside of X on my Debian Testing machines, I get an informational text display (a comment box?) that always ends with the text "(END)". The display freezes there, and I am given no opportunity to respond and let the upgrade procedure continue.[URL]..

I've tried pressing escape, the space bar, enter, arrow-keys... nothing changes (I get system beeps with each keystroke). If I Cmd+C, I get a root prompt back, but any characters I type are not displayed as I type them. For example, I can type # "shutdown -r now", and the machine will shutdown --but the characters are not displayed as I type them.

If I immediately restart, go into a regular X session, and run synaptic, I get the same comment--but in a window with a "Close" button that I can click. The upgrade will then continue [URL].. This has happened on at least 3 different boxes, all running debian testing. Under gnome and xfce... Probably with 4 different packages in the last 3 weeks?

This morning it happened on a new debian testing install, and just now it happened -- with the identical package -- on an older debian testing install on a different box.[URl]..

Debian :: Cannot Set Halt And Reboot Options To Openbox Menu

Jun 10, 2010

I can't seem to get the options halt and reboot working in my openbox right-click menu. I've tried following the guide here from post #11, where the code he says to use in the /etc/sudoers file is:

%users  john=NOPASSWD: /sbin/shutdown -h now, /sbin/shutdown -r now

...but I can't seem to get it to work on my end. In obmenu, I have for halt, to run "sudo halt" and for reboot, "sudo reboot" but they only work after I've already entered my sudo password, such as when I work with terminal to edit a config file.

Debian :: Since Upgrade To Squeeze - Can't Get My Speakers To Beep

Feb 10, 2011

When I had Lenny installed I made this computer be my alarm clock (with sanduhr) to wake me up for school in addition to my mom's TV (because I am a heavy sleeper) and now I cannot use this computer to do so. I'm not saying it's a bug. I'm just asking, how do I enable it again? I know that with Lenny to enable/disable beeping, I went to System=>Preferences=>Sound but now I don't see how to make beeping work again.

Debian Multimedia :: System Beep Doesnt Work Anymore?

Nov 21, 2010

I have a problem which is a great inconvenience to me. I want to say that I've been searching for the answer for a week and couldn't find anything but problems similar to mine which were unresolved.I used to have debian lenny, but one day i decided to reinstall my operating system and upgraded to sid, so I have a fresh install of debian sid with gnome.
The system beep no longer works on gnome.

What I mean, when i move to terminal(like ctrl+alt+f1) it works great, it also works when i type 'beep' in gnome-terminal. but it doesnt make a sound when i e.g. press ctrl+G, when i am being called on irssi, when i press backspace in gnome-terminal. These things used to work in Lenny, and I really need them (especially this hiliting in irssi). I would go back to Lenny if i didnt need some software that is not present for that version of debian. The pcspkr module is loaded

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.

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.

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?

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?
