Terminal can sound an audible bell to indicate events in Terminal windows and tabs. For example, the bell will sound when the Tab is pressed to auto-complete a command, when a command has finished executing, or when a command ends execution with a warning, error or notification.
To be notified of these events:
Select Edit ▸ Profile Preferences ▸ General.
Select Terminal bell
The setting will be saved automatically. Press Close to quit the preference dialog.
To preview the bell sound that your system produces, press Ctrl+G.
