One poster says: "It shows messages about shutdown (or its cancellation). It won't show messages about suspend, but I think that's acceptable." And then other stuff happens after that but not well explained.
Do you think that fix will stop the broadcast message and beep on shutdown? Also, I don’t know how to get any more recent updates, my Manjaro is telling me my system is up to date but I am still getting the broadcast message.
I just copied that command from a website. My nobeep.conf doesn’t have the quotes in there.
I still have the beep and message on shutdown.
Looks like we are stuck with this until another update comes through.
That’s what worked for me. Mine had the quotes when I did it, and the fix was posted on the stable-updates post.
`blacklist pcspkr` does work! but the instructions in the testing thread are incorrect.
If you run `echo “blacklist pcspkr” | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/nobeep.conf` you’ll then need to edit the file & remove the `"` speechmarks. Then the beep is disabled.
I finally got a temporary workaround for this issue. Full explanation in this thread.
In my case I needed to do TWO things:
# sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf
blacklist pcspkr ← Then add this line and save that file.
echo "blacklist pcspkr" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/nobeep.conf
This seems to stop the very harsh loud sound that was maybe coming from the motherboard? But that just gets replaced with a different sound that is quieter and maybe coming from some program running in Manjaro OS?
Step 2 System Settings → Notifications → Applications: Configure → Local System Message Service → Configure Events and uncheck Play a sound"
Then you need to reboot TWICE because those settings don’t take full effect until you reboot once. So you need to reboot AGAIN to test if it worked.
Now I still get The system is going down for a poweroff now!" “Wall” message at shutdown or reboot but I can live with that.
I already had xset -b in ~/.xprofile for the last year or so and was successfully using that to stop the beep sound. But whatever change was made to systemd that fix was not working for me anymore.
I had the same problem on a Thinkpad laptop. But on that laptop I only needed the “System Settings” (Step 2) solution to stop the beeping. So what you have to do may vary depending on your hardware.
