It is very annoying to hear loud beeps at home especially at night or when listening to music. To turn off the system bell just follow a couple of steps below and enjoy pure silence.
First step - turn off the system bell in console
To turn off the console bell edit /etc/inputrc configuration file and uncomment line:
set bell-style none
Second step - turn off the system bell in Xorg
To turn off the system bell in Xorg edit ~/.bashrc file and append code:
if [ -n "$DISPLAY" ]; then xset b off fi
To check bell settings in Xorg execute command:
$ xset q | grep bell bell percent: 0 bell pitch: 400 bell duration: 100
Reboot system so the changes take effect.
This solution did not worked for me.
