    I complied and installed PDCurses and The 3.3b1 on an Unbuntu 7.10 linux station.  It is running under Vmware.

    The X11 version of T.H.E. launches well enough, but there is no cursor in the file to show the point of insertion.  The pointer is available, but you never can tell where the text is being inserted since there is no blinking cursor at the typing point.

    I am assuming this is a problem on my side.  Any hints any one?

    Thanks

    Ben

      A little more information:

      Ran the "testcurs" procedure.  Under the OUTPUT test, the screen text that was supposed to blink did not blink.  At the end of the test, a message was posted saying that it thought blinking should be supported.  Under the terminal, the cursor does blink.  Is there an X resource that needs to be configured?
