How to adjust the volume on the console?
« on: 2019/08/31, 13:40:10 »
Hi folks,
as my console's beep is just too loud, especially during autocompletion, I looked for a solution on the internet.

Tried as follows:
pactl set-sink-volume 0 50%
provided no results
pacmd set-sink-volume 0 50%
resulted in:
Failed to parse volume
pacmd list-sinks showed me that I have only index 0

What can I do else?

You could try alsamixer.

Is the PC's internal speaker beeping? If so you could deactivate it completely:
Code: [Select]
sudo rmmod pcspkrTo have this change permanently surving reboots create a file
Code: [Select]
/etc/modprobe.d/nobeep.confAnd fill this file with:
Code: [Select]
echo "blacklist pcspkr"

@vinuv

@finotti
just heard a couple of years ago  pulseaudio should be the better sound solution?!

pulseaudio is (probably) better for the desktop, but it does run on top of alsa.  If when in a terminal you don't have pulse, you can try alsamixer...  (I haven't tried it myself.)  But what matters is that you found a solution!

Finotti: One should use the standard cli tool pactl - simple google for. man pactl is also worth reading.

Code: [Select]

pactl list sinks # all the sinks in the system
pactl set-sink-mute $sink {true|false|toggle} # mute, un-mute, toggle mute
pactl set-sink-volume  $sink vol% # also +/- vol% are possible

and so on ...

Otherwise vinzv is right - if the pcspkr module is used - some older dell notebooks see it different :D

Or just disable it (pc speaker) from the bios (if your board has that option)
I either give too many fucks or no fucks at all, it's like I cannot find a middle ground for a moderate fuck distribution, it's like what the fuck
