GNU Screen & Tmux notes

GNU/Screen splitting windows

  • C-a V or C-a | split the screen vertically
  • C-a X remove/detach the current split
  • C-a S split horizontally
  • C-a tab cycle between windows

Tmux keybindings

  • Ctrl-b % (Split the window vertically)
  • Ctrl-b : “split-window” (Split window horizontally)
  • Ctrl-b o (Goto next pane)
  • Ctrl-b q (Show pane numbers, when the numbers show up type the key to goto that pane)
  • Ctrl-b { (Move the current pane left)
  • Ctrl-b } (Move the current pane right)

And here’s my .tmux.conf

set -g prefix C-a
unbind C-b
bind C-a send-prefix

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

set -g history-limit 10000
set -g set-titles-string "#T"

unbind %
bind | split-window -h
bind - split-window -v
