How do I 'stop' highlighted text in a terminal from blinking?

How do I stop highlighted text from blinking in a terminal?

As seen here: it is off and it is on

Have no idea.  sad

This works just fine:

Re: How do I 'stop' highlighted text in a terminal from blinking?

Backup your ~/.bashrc.
Copy new from /etc/skel/.bashrc
Add back your additions one at a time until you find the one that bothers you.

I guess it is the on the line PS1=... you need to edit.

Edit
Is all terminals affected?

Re: How do I 'stop' highlighted text in a terminal from blinking?

Interesting I have been using this .bashrc  "forever" - since my CrunchBang is not earlier.

This problem only just started.

After comparing my .bashrc with /etc/skel/.bashrc

I wonder:

# man() {
#     env LESS_TERMCAP_mb=$'\E[01;31m' \
#     LESS_TERMCAP_md=$'\E[01;96;5;74m' \
#     LESS_TERMCAP_me=$'\E[0m' \
#     LESS_TERMCAP_se=$'\E[0m' \
#     LESS_TERMCAP_so=$'\E[38;5;246m' \
#     LESS_TERMCAP_ue=$'\E[0m' \
#     LESS_TERMCAP_us=$'\E[04;96;5;146m' \
#     man "$@"
# }

Since it was a man page I had a problem with.

Commented it out - no colour - but also no blinking.

I only use one terminal: terminator

That's usually just for color in man pages. Should not cause blinking.

You have another terminal installed like xterm? Try that with the original .bashrc and see if you can recreate the blinking. If xterm is working, try terminator without the transparency/compositor.
