OS version: Win8 x64 Clean install ConEmu version: 130223 [64] Far version (if you are using Far Manager): ? Bug description ConEmu cries out some sort of sound on every time I'm ssh-ed to my local virtual machine and I'm doing tab autosuggestions.
It beeps. Also the beep is somehow distored, a lot of noise.

Relates to: http://superuser.com/questions/544036/conemu-disable-bell Steps to reproduction 1. Have a MinGW console open
2. SSH to something
3. Try tabbing (tab autosuggestions)

This is NOT a ConEmu bug. ConEmu does not produce any sounds.
Beeps are produced by your ssh client.

There was suggestion already, about allowing to configure or disable beeps on printing char(7) to the console.
May be it will be implemented in future.

Can you point to the suggestion that was done? I want to vote for it and i can't find it.

The beeps is from the SSH client as you said. I'm using Git for windows which uses msys. And msys will read the logged in user config for "bell-style" from inputrc.

Disabling the bell in inputrc is not a solution as when I login with SSH to another PC the bell there is most probably enabled.

I disable all the window sound.
Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Change system sounds\No sounds (sound scheme)

I'm getting this beep while I'm not using SSH at all. I get it when using less and trying to scroll up when I'm at the top. This is quite annoying.

This is not a bug, but it would be nice to have an option in settings for disabling the bell sound.

Yes, this is a problem for me too. Have been able to disable the bell in other applications.

I'm not sure what is actually generating the tone - is it being passed up to windows or being caught by ConEmu ? Whatever is doing it, on my machine the sound clip appears to be truncated - it's not playing the whole thing.

That's why it sounds distorted, because cutting off the waveform produces a square wave.

This is still an extremely annoying problem, and I disagree that it is a terminal, shell, or SSH issue. If I open Cygwin bash, I can do all of the above using tab-completion and not hear a single sound. However, if I do the same in ConEmu it starts screaming bells like a bludgeoned child. Please fix this bug.

  1. This site is read-only.
  2. ConEmu is a terminal. You say: "I disagree that it is a terminal issue". Conclusion: This is not a ConEmu issue.
  3. Option to suppress beeps produced by your console applications was implemented long ago!

My apologies. You are quite right, this feature is now available. Updates were not taking place, and this feature is available in the latest unstable alpha version. Console applications are incapable of producing beeps or any sound (with the exception of specific apps that correctly address the OS and underlying hardware to do so). It is up to the terminal emulator to interpret these codes however it sees fit. We are saying the same thing, I just said it poorly previously. Thank you for adding this feature!
