I installed DebianPPC3.0(Woody) on an 800Mhz iMac 17"LCD. When working
in Debian in a console, either from the command line or within a text
editor (nano), I don't have a cursor marking the point of input. This is
a little disconcerting, especially in those contexts where the presence
or absence of white space is critical.
How can I configure my console so that the point-of-input cursor will
always be present?
the cursor might be set to the same color as the background and
is therefore invisible or simply set to invisible mode. To make the
cursor non-blinking, visible and white enter
echo -e '\033[?17;0;500c'
I'm embarassed to say so, but I couldn't find doc specifcally for
kernel. I looked in /usr/doc & /usr/share/doc
If this helps take a look at the kernel documentation for details,
the relevant part is "Software cursor for vga" (file VGA-softcursor.txt)
Thanks again. --Harvey
