I'm struggling to make the cursor in bash stop blinking. Also, the cursor in Iceweasel has started blinking again, but, for some reason, a lot slower than in bash :) I got those problems since I upgraded to sid, so probably some configuration files were overwritten.
I tried everything in How to stop cursor from blinking - nothing worked, probably because that was about tty, not bash.
This did not work (that is, setting the flags worked, just didn't do anything to the cursors):
gconftool --search-key cursor_blink /desktop/gnome/interface/cursor_blink = false /schemas/desktop/gnome/interface/cursor_blink = false
This did work, but only to make the cursor visible and invisible, it didn't stop the blink:
This did not work:
echo -n -e '\e[?17;14;224c' printf '\033[?12l'
My PS1 looks like this (added
PS1="\033[?17;0;127c\\[$(tput setaf 3)\\]\u \\[$(tput setaf 4)\\]\w: \\[$(tput sgr0)\\]"
This is already set to zero:
Any more ideas?
