Some of you may be annoyed with the beep sound in terminal.
If you want to get rid of that just follow these steps:

  • Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal
  • Terminal
Edit Menu -> Current Profile...
General Tab -> General -> Terminal bell (Un-Checked)

    Yeah.. you’re going to want to change the owner of that file. do this: sudo chmod [user:name] /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf Then you can run that command without any error.

    Thanks for the tips. Unfortunately, the Terminal methods does not seem to work because of the following issue (I am using Ubuntu):

    ~$ sudo echo “blacklist pcspkr” >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

    bash: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf: Permission denied

    It does not ask me for my password; it simply tells me that Permission is denied.

    Can someone let me know how to get around this (and yes, I am a newbee 🙂

    Or you can do this:

    sudo echo “blacklist pcspkr” >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

    and reboot.
