# Bash – How to turn off the beep only in bash tab-complete

autocompletebashbellterminal

I find the beep useful for some things, so I only want to turn it off for tab completion (I'm not asking how to completely turn it off, that has already been answered in a different question on Serverfault). I also don't have root access, working on RHEL5.

So you can put into your ~/.inputrc file following line:
 set bell-style none

Next, run bind -f ~/.inputrc once to load it.
