I have just moved to Japan and I bought the "ATOK X3 for Linux" software to properly input Japanese characters. It is a marvelous piece of software that I was already using in Windows and I paid it a premium but I think it was worth the money. Anyway, I managed to install it on Ubuntu 17.10, even if it is quite an old version. I have followed the two guides below:
Now everything is working except for a little but annoying thing, apparently completely unrelated to the software. The thing is that in the gnome-terminal the blinking cursor that shows the position is gone. As soon as the ATOK software is started the cursor disappears, just like the command
setterm -cursor off
was issued (but it isn't actually).
Again I am not talking about the mouse cursor. Only the blinking cursor in the terminal.
Do you know how could I bring it back? Typing anything in the terminal has become a real pain in the back!
