Beep notifications not working

Postby PsySc0rpi0n » 2020-12-06 16:37


Recently I have reinstalled my whole Debian after 7 years of using it without ever making any fresh install.

I was using Plasma Desktop but I chose XFCE this time.
I'm using irssi and I would like to listen beeps for some specific kind of actions but efen after I have set up eveyrthing I can remember of in irssi to make it beep, I just can't make my terminal emulator to beep nor to give me Desktop visual notifications about those actions happening in irssi.

So, about info and what I already did:
I'm using Debian 10.6 (Buster)
irssi 1.2.0-2 (20190211 1805) (from repositories)
Terminal Emulator from XFCE
AlsaMixer v1.1.8 (from repositories too)

I set these options in irssi:

Code: Select all
beep_msg_level MSGS NOTICES DCC DCCMSGS HILIGHT                                                                                                                                           
beep_when_away ON                                                                                                                                                                         
beep_when_window_active ON[

My AlsaMixer is like this:

The following command is supposed to emmit a beep, but I get only silence
Code: Select all
echo -ne "\a"

The PC Speaker module is also loaded
Code: Select all
$ lsmod | grep pcspkr
pcspkr                 16384  0

I also have these 2 options selected in my Terminal:

Code: Select all
Audible Bell
Visual Bell

So what else might I be missing?
