Where's my beep? (GNOME Terminal)
 
If I switch to a non-graphical environment my beep works fine (if I press tab multiple times or if I "echo -en '\007'") but in my GNOME Terminal I cannot get it to beep.

The module pcspkr is loaded
Terminal bell is ticked in my terminal profile

Thanks

Why do you need it to beep? Try checking the ALSA sound mixer.

Beep is unmuted and at full volume; it works fine outside of GNOME.

I want to get my computer to beep once it has finished running script (so I know when to pay it attention).

Ok. Have you done apt-get install beep? Try installing that.

Thanks that does the trick; didn't think of trying that. If anything this way is better as I didn't really want it to beep while pressing tab in the command-line interface.

If fact you could probably make a shell script that plays a song with the beep binary, since you can control pitch (-f) and length (I don't know the switch for that.)
