When I try to open a file using
tmux the whole window freezes. I have to kill the window with
Here are my
:set autoindent :set ts=4 :set number :set shiftwidth=4 :set showmode :filetype on :filetype plugin on :syntax enable :set mouse=a
# I like Ctrl-a as the default hotkey unbind C-b set-option -g prefix C-a # Split window using | and - unbind % bind | split-window -h bind - split-window -v # Set status bar set -g status-bg black set -g status-fg white set -g status-left ‘#[fg=green]#H’ # Highlight active window set-window-option -g window-status-current-bg red # Makes window numbering start from 1, instead of 0 set -g base-index 1
I am facing the problem in RHEL. However the same config works fine in my Mac. I guess, things were working fine till my RHEL box got restarted and I tried to recover a file in from vi swap file.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
: I tried
ssh to other box inside
tmux and running
vi there. Works fine in remote box !
Following the suggestion of @jasonwryan, I added the line
set -g default-terminal screen-256color at the end of
tmux.conf. That prevented programs like
less from working.
echo $TERM inside tmux is "screen" and outside tmux is "xterm".
Searching for $TERM led me to https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Tmux, from where I added the line
set -g default-terminal "screen-256color" as the first line of
tmux.conf. This made the
$TERM inside tmux to "screen-256color". But now when I start
vi inside tmux, it displays the following error:
E558: Terminal entry not found in terminfo 'screen-256color' not known. Available builtin terminals are: builtin_riscos builtin_amiga builtin_beos-ansi builtin_ansi builtin_pcansi builtin_win32 builtin_vt320 builtin_vt52 builtin_xterm builtin_iris-ansi builtin_debug builtin_dumb defaulting to 'ansi'
Looks like I have solved the issue. Just added
set -g default-terminal xterm as the first line of my ~/.tmux.conf and it worked !
