Whenever I open a new tab in Chrome, or pretty much interact with the UI in any way, Fluxbox makes some very annoying sound effects. Where can I disable that?

1 Answer 1


This was annoying me also! I solved it by doing the following on my system:

  1. Opened 'gnome-control-center' via the terminal.
  2. Selected the 'Sound Effects' tab.
  3. Clicked the slider to 'Off' to the right of the 'Alert volume' slider.
