If you want to force the visible bell on your console you can replace the « bl » entry in termcap with the same string suggested for « vb » above. This approach can unload you from the task of customizing each application. I use this option on all the machines where I can run Linux.

Note that applications with hardwired bells in their source code won’t be affected by this change.
