My ~/.tmux.conf file for tmux

tmux is an application that can split your console into multiple windows. Actually, it do a lot more. I am just trying to keep it simple.

To install tmux on Ubuntu and other Debian based Linux system, run this on the
terminal and follow the prompt:
sudo apt-get install tmux
This is my ~/.tmux.conf

# Status Bar set -g status-bg black set -g status-fg black set -g status-interval 1 set -g status-left '#[fg=cyan]#H#[white]' set -g status-right '#[fg=white]#(cut -d " " -f 1-4 /proc/loadavg)#[default] #[fg=cyan,bold]%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S#[default]' # Notifying if other windows has activities setw -g monitor-activity on set -g visual-activity on # Highlighting the active window in status bar setw -g window-status-current-bg cyan # Clock setw -g clock-mode-colour cyan setw -g clock-mode-style 24 # Terminal emulator window title set -g set-titles on set -g set-titles-string '#S:#I.#P #W' # History set -g history-limit 1000 # Make mouse useful in copy mode setw -g mode-mouse on # More straight forward key bindings for splitting unbind % bind | split-window -h bind h split-window -h unbind '"' bind - split-window -v bind v split-window -v
