I don't have a gnome-sound-properties executable. Also,

$ apt-file find gnome-sound-properties

No executables in there

That probably means you don't have the full GNOME installed and I
guess that was your choice.

I have squeeze testing. I see that it exists in
gnome-control-center, in unstable.

The package is also available for lenny and squeeze, is part of the
GNOME desktop, but you said you were not using a DE at all but
"fvwm", and also said that the bell was working at tty so look into
fvwm sound settings or try to load a LiveCD with a full GNOME and
check if it working from there.

While I normally run fvwm, I did the normal destop installation, so
should have the complete Gnome. On my older machine, which just
got a fresh installation, I don't (yet) run fvwm. On it, too, the
bell does not work.

Using the debian package search (
I see that there is *no* listing for gnome-control-center in
Debian *testing* (which is what I have). There is one in unstable and
in stable. That seems a trifle strange.
