I have a small netbook and the
writing cursor pretty much disappears when i move it around with the arrows in docs. I switched from Ubuntu where I had the Cursor Blinking off in Universal Access. That use to solve the problem.
There's a short answer and a long answer to this.
Sorry, there is no easily accessible option.
However, there is a hidden feature in LXSession that can help. You can change the config like so:
and log out and log back in again to make the change.
lxqt-config-input offers an option to adjust the blink rate. To set it to non-blinking:
- Navigate to Menu » Preferences » LXQt Settings » Keyboard and Mouse » Keyboard.
- Set the Cursor flash time to 0ms.
- Click Apply.
- Click Close.
The Lubuntu Manual covers
lxqt-config-input in greater detail.
Technically, both solutions are only changing the settings for the underlying toolkit— GTK and Qt, respectively. In ≤18.04/LXDE, Lubuntu used mostly GTK apps, while after it was mostly Qt apps. That doesn't mean you couldn't install Qt apps in the mainly GTK system and vice versa. The changes above would not affect those "foreign" apps. The more general solution for the two respective toolkits follows.
Change the config for both current GTK versions:
[Settings] gtk-cursor-blink = false
This should be a simple matter of changing the Qt config with the likes of the following:
or through the
qtconfig application (see the
qt-qt4config package in 18.04) via Interface » Cursor Flash Time » No Blinking but I could not get this to work in 18.04.
There is a page that covers this topic more generally for a variety of different applications, toolkits, and desktop environments that would be good to consult for any edge cases.
