How to turn off pcspeaker?

Postby trenthawkins » Wed Jul 27, 2011 3:33 am

As per: viewtopic.php?f=141&t=76010

i have done:

Code: Select all

echo "blacklist pcspkr" | sudo tee -a  /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
sudo rmmod pcspkr

But everytime i use Evince and press backspace in the "find" tool i get this massively load beep, which is excruciating when i am listening to music on my head phones. What's going on here?

Im guessing the culprit is: HDA Digital PCBeep

I'm using Debian with GNOME 3. But if you install the proper sound packages for GNOME (I think they involve canberra and in my case I also installed freedesktop-sound-themes - or something like that) the pcspeaker beep will be replaced by the default alert sound in GNOME (the one you can choose in the sound preferences dialog).
