So, forgive me for my ignorance, but I'm by no means a good programmer. I am strictly a tinkerer.
First: is there anyway to produce a "beep" from a linux box in Python? I would like to use a sound as an alarm after a set amount of time, but the Docs say nothing about a "beep" function. I did find a few modules concerning sound (sndhdr, I think was one. A couple others), but after experimenting with a few files, screwing them up bigtime in the process, I realized I had no idea how to utilize those tools whatsoever.
Second: Gedit. I know this may not be the forum, but I can't figure out how to use auto-indents in gedit. I checked the auto indent buttons in the options menu, and I have the highlighting mode in "python", but there is no auto tabbing. Any suggestions?
Third: I just remembered this one. After creating a .py document, and chmoding (if that's really a word) the executive privledge, when I double click the python icon, I get a prompt asking if I would like to run the program or edit the file. Is there anyway to set them so they launch on the selection? Maybe deactivate the "write" privledge (hmm, i just thought of that)?
Anyway, sorry I'm a huge n00b and thanks in advance for any help.
