    Could someone help me turn off the system beep?


    i need to know how to turn off the beep when you try to tab complete or backspace too far etc. im sure someone knows what im refering to, i use Arch linux and im currently using xfce4 but it does it in and out of GUI. i try to use 'setterm -blength 0' and it seems to work till i load xfce4 up again....any help is appreciated.

    #set bell-style none
    to
    set bell-style none
    With Regards,
