What exactly are you trying to do? If you want to change the appearance in tty this might go some way to helping:

Also

Code:
cat /usr/src/linux/Documentation/VGA-softcursor.txt

It is defined by the cursor settings in the "terminfo" database entry for the kind of terminal your console is using, most often "linux", "console" or "con80x25" (80 chars by 25 lines).
When using a higher-resolution mode console through the VESA framebuffer other entries could be used.
Note: these are BINARY files, you cannot edit them, changes have to be compiled from a text version by tic (the Terminal Info Compiler).

See "man terminfo" for some more information.

you still need to specify if it was a console or some kind of gui and terminal. I think it was a terminal. In that case please specify which one and which GUI do you have. bash itself has no cursor. (also probably the command reset works)

Could you please clarify, what do you mean there there is no x, only _? If I am understanding you correctly, that is the default appearance, at least on my CentOS without a GUI.

slcklnx, your replies are next to useless. Can you please make some effort with your posts?

What exactly are you trying to do [login, run a certain command, etc]?
Which OS?
Did it ever work properly?
Did you make a change after which it stopped working?

excuse me
Ubuntu for orange pi win
downloaded from their official Chinese site.

I just downloaded and installed. there was no cursor.
it is not. after any command in bash. ls, cd.
should be like this: ls_ cd _
but he is not. it is also not in nano.
I write in nano:
#include <iostream> - no cursor.
it is not comfortable.
probably should be like this: #include <iostream> _

OK. This is a problem that quite a few other people have had.

Easy fix - maybe - try entering this command since it may be a GNOME issue:

Code:
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.cursor active false
If that doesn't work...

Probably you installed through USB stick? What software did you use to transfer the Ubuntu .iso to USB? Were you transferring from a Windows machine? If so, try Rufus to make the transfer, reinstall Ubuntu and see if that works.
