Hey everyone,

I'm having a small problem with my pardus install. I'm currently using pardus on my laptop (dell inspiron 6400) and everytime I hit a key that has no function in a particular program the sysbell goes off. This morning I had a test and I happened to push the down arrow two times in maple. It went off and it wasn't very much appreciated. So my question is how can I turn off the sysbell without recompiling the whole kernel. Something I allready know is that the system bell is handled by the pcspkr option in the kernel (pardus has no module for that as far as I know).

Hi there Ben,

in an X-session you can turn the speaker bell on and off with the xset command:

xset b off
turns it off

xset b on
(not surprisingly...) will turn the beep on again.

it worked. But since the above is only a temporary solution I did some more research on how to fix the problem permanently. For pardus it turned out I had to edit the Xsession file for KDE. It's located here:


There I put the command just before the switch statement:

#turnoff pc speaker
exec xset b off &
