I am looking for a package that will sound the bell when 'USB

I can write it myself, but does it already exist?

I'm not aware of any :-?

There is one pretty close to what you need but it only generates visual alerts:


I think you will need something similar, based on udev for monitoring USB events and act accordingly using a set of rules...

Thanks, Camaleón. The beep backage actually has an example of doing it:

tail -f /var/log/xferlog | grep --line-buffered passwd | \
              beep -f 1000 -r 5 -s

I know I had seen it somewhere ;-)
