Modify Xfce Terminal cursor

I’ve always liked to have my terminal cursor as a blinking underline. This feature is present for the new Xfce Terminal that ships with Slackware -current. Unfortunately it cannot be enabled from the preferences of Xfce Terminal in Slackware 14.2. It is, however, possible to set it by modifying the config file of the program.

On my Slackware 14.2 system, I opened ~/.config/xfce4/terminal/terminalrc and modified these two lines as follows:

[Configuration]
ColorCursor=#ffffffffffff
MiscAlwaysShowTabs=FALSE
MiscBell=FALSE
MiscBordersDefault=TRUE
MiscCursorBlinks=TRUE
MiscCursorShape=TERMINAL_CURSOR_SHAPE_UNDERLINE
MiscDefaultGeometry=80x24
MiscInheritGeometry=FALSE
MiscMenubarDefault=FALSE
MiscMouseAutohide=FALSE
MiscToolbarDefault=FALSE
MiscConfirmClose=TRUE
MiscCycleTabs=TRUE
MiscTabCloseButtons=TRUE
MiscTabCloseMiddleClick=TRUE
MiscTabPosition=GTK_POS_TOP
MiscHighlightUrls=TRUE
ScrollingBar=TERMINAL_SCROLLBAR_NONE
FontName=Terminus 10

That’s it!
