Hey folks,

I remember back in the late 2000s, we used KDE on our workstations and used to have an option to have a notification bell go off when there was either activity or silence in the specific terminal tab.

This worked well when we had to wait for a host to come online. We would ping the IP and grep for "bytes received", which then sounded a bell or whatever sound file was chosen whenever the terminal started showing output.

Now I have been looking for something similar in current terminal emulators, but not finding it and really missing the feature these days.

Does anyone have an idea of some emulators that does something like this?

Regards,

Gerald.
