I think I'm running in the foreground.  I start the program with

   motion

I thought non-daemon mode required

   motion -n

Could the documentation mean that _beeps_ only work in non-daemon mode?  I assumed that it meant _quiet_ only works in non-daemon, so that otherwise it would beep.

Thanks.  I'll keep playing with it.

I've never heard any beeps but manual says: "Only works in non-daemon mode." - are you running motion in the foreground? - it would use the PC speaker if anything.

Thanks for the responses to my previous (first) question.  Here's a simple one (I hope).

The config option Quiet is supposed to prevent the output of beeps when detecting motion.  I have never heard a beep, although I run motion with this option set to Off.  I have used Motion with both an older laptop and a new desktop.  Are beeps generated through the PC speaker or through a sound card?  What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,

Jeff
