- I'm using a splash screen on my frame buffer display, but it is disturbed by a blinking cursor, and after a while the screen is blanked. How can I prevent this?
- Screen saver and blinking cursor can be turned off (and on)
using escape sequences.
To turn off the screen saver, send the sequence "\E[9;0]" to the terminal =/dev/tty1". For example, output the content of file
"/etc/blank_off"in one of your init scripts:
# cat /etc/blank_offTo turn off the blinking cursor, send the sequence "\E[?25l\E[?1c" to the terminal. For example, copy the content of file
"/etc/init_tty"to the terminal:
# cat /etc/init_tty
