There are many similar-sounding questions, so let me emphasize: I only want to change the color of my cursor; I do not want to change the color of my text. If it helps, however, my normal text color is white.
I realize xterm allows this, but I prefer to stick with gnome-terminal. There does not seem to be a preference in the menus.
System particulars: Ubuntu 12.04 alpha 2, Gnome Terminal 3.2.1, XFCE desktop
