on another mailing list somebody sent a request regarding to a beep,
that's why I noticed that the beep doesn't work if I run printf "\a" and
printf "\7" when using xfce4-terminal.
Is it a bug/feature or something misconfigured on my machine?

        JFTR on my Arch install printf "\a" and printf "\7" do not work when
        running them in xfce4-terminal 0.6.3 but they cause a beep when using
        MATE terminal 1.6.2 instead.
