Ubuntu – Disable alert sounds on Ubuntu 20.04

settingssound

I cannot see where to disable alert sounds on Ubuntu 20.04.
I believe it was available under Sound Settings in older versions of Ubuntu.
"Alert sound" is there but not a corresponding volume.

  1. Is there an alternative way to do this?
  2. If this is not possible from Settings, who on earth decided that was a good idea?
    Thanks!

    Would this work?

    In a terminal, type:

    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.sound event-sounds false
