The bell is set to use kde notification by default now.  This way you can just 
tell the notification to play a sound, or run the beep command.  This should 
be in the settings menu, on konsole's menu bar.

Since I've had this laptop, I've had to stop using beep, as there is no legacy 
pc speaker, and the bell goes through the soundcard and sounded really bad 
(and loud if I had the volume up)

I haven't had in the last few days to continue migrating my configuration, but 
I plan to get to konqueror next.

I think that this functionality has been split to a separate package, but I 
can't remember the name of it.

I use this all the time myself, so I'll be sure to find out what's going on

I won't be able to test this for a while, since I'm using virtualbox to test 
my config before I make the switch, and the host kde seems to be grabbing my 
print key.
