FancyBell for X

FancyBell for X replaces the X keyboard bell with an audio playback using the Xkb Extension. It can replace any bell rings by any X clients, even remote ones, by just running it.

      Since that is an important feature
      defaults to compile with Xkk now. The LKM is optional.

      Thank you for your efforts!

      Thank you for the information. Fortunately,
      FancyBell theoretically does not depend on any
      kernel :). With an Xkb-aware application, it will
      also be able to ring different "bells" on
      different events in a unified manner like Windows
      does. It is the merit of using the Xkb extension,
      I think.

      If you have Gnome be sure to have a look at <a
      It's doesn't depend on X and replaces the linux
      console bell also. Though a Linux Kernel Module
      (LKM) is needed.
