I am new to this list and cannot find my answer in the list archive so
I thought I'd subscribe and ask directly.

I use about ten screen windows, all named, all doing various things,
one of which is the irssi irc client. My terminal is urxvt on a 
Debian computer. 

Irssi will beep my terminal to get my attention based on some
conditions I have set. 

If however I happen to be working in another screen window, screen
will give me a visual bell instead of beeping.

this is the original line in my ~/.screenrc 

activity "activity in %n (%t)"

I was told, and the manpage seems to indicate, to add a ^G to that

activity "activity in %n (%t) ^G"

This still wont give me an audible bell, just flashes the visual one.

Is there something I am doing wrong?
