At times I lose my cursor in a vc.
Is there a way to try to get it back?
This is probably related to the fact that I use 2.6.7-Ruby multi-user
Linux. I'll ask there...
I also am experiencing that Hugo. I 'think' I have narrowed it down
to running either rxvt or xterm. If I don't have X running I never
lose the cursor, but with a term running in X, I 'sometimes' do.
setterm -cursor on does not return the cursor to the console.
Shutting down X, with a term running, does, eventualy allow the cursor
to show up in the console.
It is not really reproducable enough for me to file a bug report to
any package. So I haven't.
I noticed after posting with cursors gone on all vc's, that later I
somehow got them back again. I don't know when of course. I will try
restarting X. Thanks!
