Description of problem:
For as long as I can remember gnome-terminal has ignored the volume
set for the system bell in the gnome control center. Whatsmore, the
gnome terminal preferences only allows you to silence the bell, not
control the volume. This is really bothersome for people with a loud bell, like
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.go to preferences:///Peripherals
3.Enter the keyboard preference settings.
4.Lower your keyboard bell setting.
5.Open a gnome-terminal and tab away - bell sound should not have decreased.
Actual Results: Bell sound stays loud.
Expected Results: Bell should have lowered in volume.
Does the bell volume setting work in any other app? (Emacs for example?)
Does it work for the Test button in keyboard-properties?
If you exit keyboard-properties and start it again, does the second instance
have the setting you set in the first instance?
Yes the setting works in other applications (emacs in particular).
It works in the test button and appears the same on reopening.
I have the same problem with the bell volume on several computers of different
types with different install histories.
g-t isn't doing anything strange though; it uses exactly the same function call
to beep that those other apps do.
Hrm, I guess it's something weird going on. I'm not sure where to start looking.
If you notice any other patterns please note them here.
The move to GNOME 2 replaces the bell-volume-setting control panel and also
gnome-terminal, so this won't apply to GNOME 2. Only release showstoppers are
being fixed for GNOME 1 at this point.
