013. I hate the sound of the bell. I would prefer to disable it perhaps enabling the visual bell as an alternative.

If you are running X then you can simply type "xset -b" without quotation marks at the command prompt. Alternatively, if you are running the bash shell then you can add the command "xset -b 2> /dev/null" without quotation marks at the end of your .bash_profile file in your home directory to have the audible bell disabled each time you log in. For more information see the Visual-Bell-mini-HOWTO at <http://www.linux.org/>
