This was driving me nuts for ages – I couldn’t work out how to turn off that annoying beep you got whenever an auto-completion had multiple or no hits. Anyway, it’s a ReadLine configuration (so it’ll apply to any shell using ReadLone) – edit (or create)
.inputrc in your home directory, and insert the following line:
set bell-style off
Finally – peace!

go into the window-settings menu option under ‘terminal’
uncheck ‘audible beep’
check ‘visual beep’
click use settings as default
Well sure, if you want to get all ‘easy to use’ on me, that might work too…
Really hated this ‘beep’ of the terminal.
And yes, peace at last 🙂
