Yeah, Emacs can't set that in all contexts.

Do you run a Unix system?

If so, do you run the GUI version, or do you
run it with -nw (or a -nox binary) in
a terminal emulator (e.g., xterm)?

Or do you run it in a Linux VT ("the console"
or ttys)?

Or do you run it in another way still?

It should always work in the GUI version tho
I don't have it so I can't/don't want to verify
that. (But it is doable in the xterm and VTs as
well, for sure.)

By the way, the help (in this case `C-h f') is
your friend:

    This command [`blink-cursor-mode'] is
    effective only on graphical frames.
    On text-only terminals, cursor blinking is
    controlled by the terminal.
