maybe you could do something with a little bash script?
Remember that you can change the screen title from within the console by echoing a special control sequence, e.g. echo -n -e "\033kmy screen title\033\\"
Let us assume you have the title you want to make blink in a variable $TITLE
Then how about this:
# first we need a function that generates an
# empty string of the same length as $TITLE
for i in `seq $len`; do
# now we have the title in $TITLE and the
# "blank" title in $BLANKTITLE
# all we need to do is alternate them every
# second or so
while [ true ]; do
if [ $status -eq 0 ]; then
echo -n -e "\033k$BLANKTITLE\033\\"
echo -n -e "\033k$TITLE\033\\"
Now all you need to do when you want to make your screen title flash is call the function blink
This can certainly be improved; e.g. maybe you don't want to have an infinite loop there, or it will never stop blinking... but I just wanted to give the key idea. :-)
