How to disable the beep sound system-wide

f I want to disable beep sounds from stuff like bash, I add this line to "/etc/inputrc":
set bell-style none

Sadly, this doesn't work for some other events like GDM start-up and shut down. I thought that adding this line to "/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf" would help:
blacklist pcspkr

That makes me wonder and doubt where the sound actually comes from.
