    Vim resets cursor in TTY.

    Hello, dear forum members.

    I set TTY (console which opens when Ctrl+Alt+F{1..6} pressed) cursor to non-blinking mode by adding to .bashrc this:

    echo -e \033[?81;0;120c

    But when I start vim, it resets the cursor to its default state and it continues blinking, killing my eyes, so I can not work normally.

    I understand that maybe this quiestion refers more to vim, but maybe you can please-please help me?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Have you looked into setting appropriate VIM options? Not sure if such an option is available, but you can look.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
