XBellD

XbellD is a small daemon for replacing the standard X Window System terminal bell with a more interesting set of sounds. This is useful for systems where the terminal bell is handled by the PC speaker, or where different sounds are desired for different classes of X clients. XbellD works by intercepting terminal bell requests on the server side, and then playing user-specified sounds through a PCM capable sound card. The resource class of the client making a terminal bell request is used to match a corresponding sound file which should be played when such a request is made.

    The Fancy Beeper is a Linux kernel module. This is useful (except for me, since I don't use Linux), but isn't really necessary for beeps that don't originate from the kernel itself (console). XBellD works with XLib, and therefore will theoretically work on any operating system that runs the X Window system.

    Please compare your project with the fancy beeper package from Jason F. McBrayer (http://www.carcosa.net/jason/software/beep/) and outline the differences. Perhaps you want to join efforts on a single project.
