What is the best way to turn off the Ubuntu beep permanently?

My Kubuntu installation makes me jump every now and then by emitting a hideous beep - generally when I reach the limit of a text field etc. How can I turn it off? I have tried the following:

sudo modprobe -r pcspkr
sudo rmmod pcspkr

And I have added the following into /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist:

blacklist pcspkr

But the beep persists...

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You may wish to see this question's answer for further details. As it is also on SuperUser I do not believe I need to paste the content here.

I would go the /etc/inputrc route.

you ran "update-modules" after blacklisting the module?

Er... no. I need to do that then? :-) – teabot Feb 12 '10 at 11:54 which modules are loaded or not should be controlled by /etc/modules.conf... which is created by update-modules from entries in /etc/modules.d/* or whatever the distro is using – akira Feb 12 '10 at 13:54
