When I go to Universal Access -> Hearing tab -> turn Visual Alerts on and try Test Flash with either the option to flash the window title or to flash the entire screen, nothing happens. I'm on 12.10 Quantal Quetzal 64 bit with 3.5.0-22-generic.

Also, see my related question about audio alerts.

I have the same problem with 12.04 32 bits, could you add the 12.04 tag? –  qwertzguy Mar 15 '13 at 14:05
