I am trying to experiment with the beep function of my computer. When I type beep at a terminal and hit enter, nothing happens. There is absolutely no sound.
I am running GRML 1.0 and using Fluxbox for a window manager.
Ideally I would like my computer to beep when I receive a message from a friend. I am using Bitlbee through IRSSI. I run IRSSI in a screen. My ~/.irssi/startup looks like this:
set bell_beeps on
set beep_msg_level MSGS NOTICES DCC DCCMSGS HILIGHT
Then in my ~/.screenrc I have this:
for the last line in the file.
I want to have either a visual or audio alert occur when my chat window is unfocused and I receive a message.
Can anyone help me?
