Disable Ubuntu System Beep!


If you’re like me, you’re probably quite annoyed with the system beep in Ubuntu. Luckily, there’s an easy fix:

To disable it temporarily:

  1. In Terminal (or the console), enter: “sudo rmmod pcspkr”
  2. You should not hear the system beep until your next system reboot.

To disable it permanently:

  1. In Terminal (or the console), enter: “sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist”
  2. At the end of the file, enter a new line “blacklist pcspkr”
  3. Type Ctrl+O (to save the file), then Ctrl+X (to exit nano)
  4. After your next system reboot, you should no longer here the system beep.

    I used “xset -b” to disabl the bell on X sessions.
    I wanted the speaker to stay loaded in case of some critical errors.
