http://askubuntu.com – After setting the beep preference on Kubuntu 11.10, the beep sound does not change: $ xset q | grep bell bell percent: 50 bell pitch: 400 bell duration: 100 $ beep $ sudo /usr/bin/xset b 10 400 10 $ xset q | grep bell bell percent: 10 bell pitch: 400 bell duration: 10 $ beep $ The first and second beeps emitted sound the same. Is there something that I am missing? (HowTos)
