When I click on the “Log out…” button in the whiskers menu - there’s a short chirping sound / beep. How to turn it off?
I don’t have a physical pc speaker. And I also blacklisted the suggested modules:
# cat /etc/modprobe.d/nobeep.conf
Any other solution?
I’m using pipewire.
xset -b too… does not help.
Probably more a crackling or popping? Take a look here: PipeWire - ArchWiki
No, not a crackling - it’s a clean sound, a beep. The same sound as if in the terminal you type:
echo ^G # ctrl-v ctrl-g
Definitely it’s the dialog that starts the sound, but I don’t know where to turn it off.
On windows you had a sound scheme setting - where you could turn off all sounds. I don’ know if there’s an equivalent.
BTW: I noticed the same sound is played if you press backspace in the search field of the whiskers menu (start menu).
maybe something to do with
Well yes could be.
@samo_dadela Does your “beep sound” sound like this file on your system?
If so, then @nikgnomic is correct here.
- You can mute “System Sounds” in
- Disable it in
xfce4-appearance-settings under “Settings” → “Event Sounds” (Re-login then)
- Completely remove it from pipewire:
pamac remove pipewire-x11-bell
systemctl --user restart pipewire
@megavolt Yes, that’s the sound.
Enable event sounds was already unchecked, so that’s not it.
Mute "System Sounds in
pavucontrol works, though.
I did not mute it, but lowered the volume so it’s not that bothersome - even better than turning it off completely.
Mistery solved! Thanks to everybody.
