    [SOLVED] Where would you throw scripts that you want to startup automatically?

    I want to write a script. or append a line to a file that loads up when the system starts... Really, all I want is for the system to automatically "xset -b"... because I'm sick of getting my ears blasted with a loud BEEP when I hit backspace too many times. lol.

    Well, the system beep can be disabled in system, preferences, sound.

    But to answer your question:

    system, preferences, sessions is where you would put your scripts you want started at boot.

    From memory:

    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    Append this line:
    blacklist pcspkr
    To kill the speaker this time:
    sudo modprobe -r pcspkr

    I learned today to add things to /etc/rc.local.
    I do not use Ubuntu any more, nor have I ever used Gnome. Therefore, I tend to give advice that is distro- and DE-agnostic, which, while perhaps not the easiest way, will allow you to move freely between machines.
