[SOLVED] Generate a sound / beep / tts from CLI ?

Hi everyone,

I'm testing a script and a beep (or any sound would help in my debugging ) beep seem not to be installed by default.

is there any other command than can generate a sound from the CLI  ? (a beep, playing a file, speaking trough TTS..)

Thanks..

For a simple beep try

printf '\a'

There's also aplay(1) & speaker-test(1) from the alsa-utils package for music files and random noise, respectively.


To obtain a root shell use su -. Using just su will result in "command not found" messages.

echo -e "\a"
It's as simple as that!
