Does anyone know how to make urxvt play a mp3 file in replacement of a system beep? My PC does not have a pc speaker so I need a way to make terminal notifications go through sound card.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

  • Under which Unix variant? If Linux, which distribution? I don't think that rxvt has anything like that, but most unix variants let you direct all system beeps to a sound card (in fact, most do so by default). – Gilles Apr 25 '15 at 12:16
