I am using ConsoleZ to work on multiple Cygwin bash terminals. I use the Teb extensively for path completion. But by default, the "bell" sound is heard whenever the completion is not unique. This became annoying, so I looked for a way to disable that beep.

When using Cygwin's terminal directly, I can disable that sound via the settings dialog. However, I cannot locate such setting in ConsoleZ.

How can I disable the bell beep in ConsoleZ (or Console2)?


Apparently, this is a bash readline feature. One needs to set the bell-style variable in .inputrc as follows:

set bell-style none

and start a new terminal instance for this to take effect.
