I'm using Debian Wheezy with Gnome 3 and I'd like to disable the "bip" sound made when pressing the volume +/- keys. Audio programs that are running currently (I have no clue which program exactly controls this function) are:

gvfs-gdu-volume-monitor gvfs-afc-volume-monitor hd-audio0 pulseaudio

I don't use Gnome3 so I can't check this, but according to this thread, you should be able to do the following:

  1. Run dconf-editor

  2. Navigate to org -> gnome -> desktop -> sound -> event-sound and deselect it. You may also want to deselect input feedback sounds if selected.
