[Solved] How to change cursor visibilitty?

Post by Hero »

Hi!

I think it is hard to see the cursor in Writer. It is a very thin, though blinking, line. I often have to move it to be able to find it.
Is there a way to change its form or thickness etc.?

I've freezed cursor in Kubuntu. For that - one should install qt4-config package, start is with qtconfig-qt4, and there, in the "interface" tab, one should set "cursor flash time" to "No blinking". It works in my LibreOffice3.5
