tty cursor configuration?


hi all.

I want to make my console's cursor to be non-blinking block.
found this solution: echo -e '\033[?x;y;zc' in Documentation/VGA-softcursor.txt

but after doing reset or stty sane everything goes back to blinking underscore
what should I do to make non-blinking cursor default cursor form?

Add the line into
~/.bash_profiles (sets it once when you log in)
or
~/.bashrc (sets it every time you start a new terminal/console)
