I have raspberry PI connected to a monitor. I do not login into raspberry, it simple boots up and stays on the login screen. After the raspberry boots up, rc.local executes my shell script, which echos all the output from remote server's tail command to my monitor connected to raspberry:
/usr/bin/ssh somehost.com "tail -n 50 -f /log/global.log" > /dev/tty0
The log uses text coloring like this:
\033[38;5;235m Gray Text \033[0m
So far so good, but when I'm trying to get the text to blink like this:
The colors are set correctly on the monitor output, but the text doesn't actually blink. When I do:
echo -e "\033[5;32;40mBlink Text\033[0m"
On my ubuntu machine, it's blinking fine, but not through the raspberry on my monitor, even though all the color codes work. Any suggestions how to solve this problem? Thanks!
