    Need Terminal Bell to Work

    I just installed ubuntu 12.04 with Unity and I have an application I use which requires the terminal bell to work in order for me to hear certain alerts.
    How do I do this?

    This thread has some useful suggestions:

    By the way, keep in mind that the PC speaker kernel module is blacklisted by default. The first thing I'd do is re-enable it...

    Well in KDE the bell goes through the external speakers. Is it possible to direct Unity to send the bell to the external speakers?

    I found that post before I opened this thread none of that stuff worked for me (it is 2 years old).
    I will not be able to use ubuntu without this feature.
    I am a System Administrator and I open an ssh to another linux server and run a program which monitors various processes and beeps if a problem is found so that I can turn my attention to it. I don't want to re-write the program, I just need the terminal to beep as it should when a \a is sent.

    Anyone who does some programming needs a terminal bell.
