Tmux tips and tricks

prefix key

From https://gist.github.com/JikkuJose/7509315

Change “prefix” key to the backtick ` add to ~/.tmux.conf

unbind C-b
set-option -g prefix `
bind ` send-prefix

the last line means typing two backticks in succession will pass the second one to the application - so can still enter ` into app. running in the tmux window.

terminal colours

Colours in tmux… need TERM “xterm-256color”…

add to ~/.bashrc:

export TERM=xterm-256color

also to ~/.tmux.conf

set -g default-terminal "xterm-256color"

start programs in tmux

Something like this:

tmux start-server
tmux new-session -d -s $session
tmux rename-window "direwolf"
tmux selectp -t 0
tmux send-keys "direwolf -t 1 -T "%c" -c /home/gm4slv/direwolf.conf" C-m
