Having it work out-of-the-box would be nice. After a fresh install, I have a

Sometimes though, there are things that a user needs to answer. Thus, if I
want to have the script running and go do something else, I want to "beep"
when it's going to need attention by the user. I noticed this does not work
in Stretch so I ended up removing the part to install the "beep" package and
use beep to alert the user. I have tried escape codes via echo -e as well,
and no beep there either.


Does printf "\a" works for you? Though, echo -e "\a" works here too.

I just now tried it in Konsole. Nope, doesn't work.
