When we are in the terminal and we hit tab to complete the command line, and it can't complete all the way because there are multiple options, the terminal makes a "Bummmmpppp" noise. Is there a way to switch this off?

    You might also check /usr/share/sounds/gnome/default/alerts, which is where the sounds are stored. Maybe someone has been putting in little tricks? – Charles Green Feb 12 at 19:47

    @PerlDuck I saw a post, I think here, long ago. Someone had moved 'cat' and replaced with echo meow or something very similar. – Charles Green Feb 12 at 20:47

Looks like opening the terminal preferences and deselecting the terminal bell does the trick.

    It's especially bad when in the middle of some massive code refactoring and everything is going south and then on top of all that Ubuntu hits you with the BUMMMMMPPPPP!!!!/DRRRRRIIIPPPPPPP!!!! I'll be in starbucks yelling at Ubuntu to shut up and people are like "What's this guys problem ..." – Ole Feb 13 at 1:21
