Turn off BEEP in BASH

Sometimes your on a computer that has speakers and if your on the termial it keeps beeping. This can be annoying if all your doing is using the tab key to use auto complete. Who ever thought that making the terminal beep was a good idea? Anyway below are some ways to get ride of the beeps.

In /etc/inputrc file add the line below.
set bell-style none

Put the line below in a profile. If you want to set it globally but in /etc/profile, otherwise set it in bash_profile, .bashrc, and/or .profile.
setterm -blength 0

This will make the beeping sound go away for good. If you have any questions or comments please post them below.
