Hi,

I have an app that uses the framebuffer in the console window. Its a rolling demo which requires no user interaction once running.

Is there anyway to remove the blinking cursor in the bottom left of the screen.

Also the screen times out after a few mins and i need to press the keyboard to get back the screen. Is there a way of completly removing this screen timeout?

Thanks in advance,

Anand

"setterm -blank 0" will stop the console blanking. I think setterm also has an option to remove the cursor, check the man page.
