Any one else having problems getting X-chat to beep on a new channel message?

I have enabled this feature in settings --> preferences --> chatting --> general

and also by right-clicking on the individual tabs and selecting "Beep on channel message"


I am running FC2 with all updates and X-chat Version 2.0.5

Had this working with no problems in FC1


Any thoughts or tricks?


Thanks,

I think the system bell is disabled for some reason... Not really sure.

I went to xchat.org and got myself a perl script that basically plays a sound when your nick is highlighted or private message is sent to you.

Thanks for the reply jale2ice. I installed the following 2 perl plugins with no success.
They appeared to load correctly but I never got any sounds.


beepme.pl (http://shell-tools.org/~vetinari/#xchat)


and:


lop-scriptv0.0.2xchat2.pl (http://www.neos-perl.e-tavle.dk/7.asp?a=2&intNoteID=8260)



Are either one of those the script that you used?


Thanks

In FC2 the PC speaker module is not loaded by default.

You can load it manually as root with the command

/sbin/modprobe pcspkr

and it should immediately start working.
