Description Toni Spets 2017-01-12 17:34:19 UTC
This has been driving me nuts. I have not found any way to disable cursor blink in MonoDevelop, be it a build from git or the flatpak one. MonoDevelop seems to compeletely ignore the GTK cursor blink setting that I have globally set in gtkrc to be disabled for both GTK 2 and 3.

Can there please be an option in MD/XS itself to disable cursor blink if the user so desires?

Thank you.

Possible fix

Attached is a possible fix. It seems the order was off here, adding parenthesis wouldn't hurt either.

I can't compile MD currently so I couldn't test it, unfortunately.
