• Random sound effect every once in awhile


    I have a fairly new installation of Antergos. When I am using chromium and the terminal I sometimes hear a sound effect which I don’t recognize. It is not very loud and is short. I don’t really know how to describe the sound. Is there a way I could find the sound file on the system so I could narrow down what is causing the sound?

  • I’m now thinking that the sound is coming from an artifact in my HDMI connection. Is that possible? It seems like it might happen when the OS is opening a new audio channel or something like that.

    I did a test with direct stereo plug, bypassing the HDMI, and I didn’t hear the noise at all.

  • It may be that I have a bad video card. I’m going to get a new video card and see if it makes a difference.
