The single-pixel-width cursor / caret in Gedit (and other text editor boxes in Ubuntu) is pretty thin and hard to see:
I like the block cursor used in the standard terminal, however:
Is there a way to adjust the Gedit typing cursor to be a thicker line, or a block, or a horizontal underbar, or something easier to see? I would like to do this while still maintaining the standard "insert text here" behavior of the bar; I do not want to overwrite text.
(I believe both "cursor" and "caret" are sometimes used to refer to the text insertion point.)
