Question How to enable "Typing break" alert sound in GNOME?


Laptop: RHEL6 Workstation.
Desktop Environment:GNOME
Sound Preferences: Default Alert Sound set. Alert Volume enabled to maximum.
Keyboard Preferences: Typing break enabled.
PC: Ubuntu 10.04
Desktop Environment:GNOME
Sound Preferences: Default Alert Sound set. Alert Volume enabled to maximum.
Keyboard Preferences: Typing break enabled.
Now; in the laptop, after the typing break gets completed; an alert sound ( beep sound) is emitted.

But; in the PC, after the typing break gets completed; an alert sound ( beep sound) is not emitted.


In the PC; how to enable the alert sound( beep sound) after the typing break gets completed?

Aren't you Linux certified?

1. Is pulseaudio running on the PC?
2. Have you turned up other volume levels (pcm, master)?
3. Can you hear other system sounds?
4. Are speakers plugged in and powered on?

@DJ Shaji...
For all your questions; the answer is resounding YES.
FYI, I listen to songs on that PC.

IMO; please take the pain of re-reading my original post word-by-word carefully. That would help you in answering my question specifically.

Congratulations, you really are a certified engineer.

Do you think that people who aren't certified engineers have unlimited free time?

1. That you listen to music proves nothing. The music player might use ALSA directly.

2. Pulseaudio might be in "standby" mode.

3. Pulseaudio is known to be buggy as hell. Didn't they tell you that in certification class? Download and compile the latest version. Hint:
Code:
./configure
make
sudo && make install
Alternatively, bind the key to a shell script that does something like "xkbbell".
