Since upgrading to Xubuntu 18, the system started playing sounds (beeping).
How do I disable this?
I've tried disabling beeping in X server - nothing changed
xset -b xset b off
I've looked into
amixer, but it says that the system sounds channel is muted.
The kernel module
pcspkr is not loaded.
set bell-style none in
gtk-error-bell = 0 in
~/.gtkrc-2.0 (I don't really know how to figure out what GTK version it should be and whether that's important for config file. I can see this system having some packages with
gtk3 in the name).
Finally, I looked into:
Settings > Appearance > Enable Sound Events, but the checkbox isn't ticked.
I'm out of ideas... I'm not allowed to open the case: it's a company's computer, and working like this is not really possible.
