Disable beep/bell in tmux

June 8, 2022  ‐ 1 min read

The visual cue and audio bell are not my favorite features in tmux. Especially the audio bell while I'm listening to music. Luckily they can be disabled in the tmux config.

In order to disable the audio and visual 'bell' you add the following configuration to your ~/.tmux.conf file:

set-option -g bell-action none
set-option -g visual-bell off
