No bell sound in terminal

xfce4-terminal 0.6.3 Linux Mint 17.3 32 bit.

I've got system sounds working using the concise directions in the 'how to install' text file in the 'Smooth' sound theme, and I've enabled bell in the terminalrc file but still no bell in console applications. (As a workaround I'm using the Windows version of Putty under Wine).

Has anyone got this working? If so how? Does anyone know what sound file name terminal is compiled to use? Thanks.

Re: No bell sound in terminal

If you are using pulseaudio (which by default swallows the bell sound), edit /etc/pulse/default.pa and add the following to the bottom of the file:

# audible bell
load-sample-lazy x11-bell /usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/bell.oga
load-module module-x11-bell sample=x11-bell

... (point the first line to a valid bell sound) and restart the pulseaudio server:

pulseaudio -k

...and

Make sure that xfce4-terminal has MiscBell set to TRUE in ~/.config/xfce4/terminal/terminalrc.

Re: No bell sound in terminal

Thanks, that did the job. The volume is very low however, even with all the controls I can find set to maximum. Any insight on embigening the volume?

Re: No bell sound in terminal

Check the volume of your System Sounds. Open up pavucontrol (you may need to install it if it is not installed) and set the volume level on the Playback tab.

If it is at max, then you'll need to re-record the sound event that you are using with a louder volume.
