Killing the Beep in VMWare

Oh thank Jebus! I found the way to kill the system beep on VMWare at the application level. It is so annoying and it is such a pain to turn it off for each shell across every VM.

I found out that if you add the following to the \Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\VMWare\VMWare Workstation\config.ini file, that the beep/bell is disabled.

mks.noBeep = "TRUE"

Annoying System Beep

The system beep in Linux and *BSD is driving me nuts. Under VMWare it is really LOUD which is not nice in an office environment (or any other for that fact)

Here are a few ways to turn this thing off that have worked for me.

Black list the module
edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist and add the line
blacklist pcspkr
FreeBSD (maybe others too):
X Windows
xset b off
set nobeep
put hw.syscons.bell=0 in the /etc/sysctl.conf file
