View Full Version : [ubuntu] [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
