Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2012-09-03 15:55:29 CEST
The X11 beep doesn't work anymore in most cases. The culprit is XKB and affects both the server and client:

 - X11 applications tend to call XkbBell() instead of XBell().

 - XBell() doesn't produce a sound on the client anymore, whilst XkbBell() does.

This is a bit annoying when you use terminals as they make heavy use of the bell.
Comment 1 Pierre Ossman cendio 2013-04-15 16:39:56 CEST
Server side is now "fixed". XkbBell is intercepted by a server side client though and sound is produced via our PulseAudio channel. This is how it would happen with a fat machine as well, so I suppose that's sufficient.

Client problems still remain.
