How to disable system beep (graphic mode)

Hello guys,

A few days ago, I was looking for a method to get rid of the annoying system beep. This one worked for me in openbox:

Right click on the speaker icon >> click on Open Mixer >> Select controls > check beep

And finally click on the speaker icon below .


This also disables the annoying shutdown beep.

I hope you guys find this useful.

Man, I wish I had found this post countless hours ago! I eventually used this command to get rid of the beeping:

amixer set "PC Beep" mute

I think it changes the exact same settings as this graphical method.

What I did to disable the beep is blacklist the "pcspkr" module.
If it's running and you just want to turn it off for a bit, you can modprobe -r pcspkr
