Vim beeps. A lot. For instance, whenever I type a '>' in insert mode (can't even guess why it dislikes that specific character), or execute a macro, or tab-complete a file path. This is really starting to annoy me. Is there anywhere I can see a list of the things that make vim beep, and disable a bunch of them?

Sundeep's link disables a Vim plug-in. As a last resort, turn off all System Sounds. Try: How to disable the beep sound system-wide or as most distros use pulseaudio try: Mute sound effects on Ubuntu from command line
