If the cursor periodically blinks after an application exits, a user should configure as follows.
In the ncurses 5.7 terminfo, the invisible(civis)/normal display(cnorm)/highlighting(cvvis) of the xterm cursor are as follows:
When the upper configuration is enabled, the normal cursor displays with the non-blinking mode and the emphasis cursor displays with the blinking mode. So, the cursor does not blink when the terminfo application displays the own cursor.
If a user want to blink the cursor, turn off the CursorCtrlSequence entry or do in the following commands:
% infocmp xterm > xterm.ti
Open the xterm.ti file, change from a value of cnorm and cvvis to \E?25h.
% tic -o ~/.terminfo xterm.ti
