Stop CPU beep in Ubuntu/Debian

The CPU beep is a really irritating thing in Linux distros and sometimes the graphical sound manager does not work when shutting it up.

Fortunately there is a simple way to do it in terminal. In Ubuntu (and distros based upon it) type:

gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

In Debian type:

su
gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

And add the following line to the file:
blacklist pcspkr

Save it and reboot. Now the CPU beep should be disabled!
