Is there a linux program to make my keys clicky?

In Windows, you can use the ClicKey program to make click sounds when you type keys. In Mac OS X, you can use KeyClick.

"OK... buyer beware; this is a total guess.

Try this:

add yourself to the 'pulse_access' group
log out and back in
see if xset c works then

I can't get keyclick working either (i.e. xset c 100 didn't work for me either) and I wanted to share this before trying steps 2 and 3 above.

Hope this helps (us both!)-pbr

EDIT: http://wiki.archlinuxdotorg/index.php/PulseAudio leads me to believe it's the pulse_access group not the audio group; additional steps may be needed as well. The switch to pulseaudio seems to have introduced a few wrinkles, huh?"
