I accidentally screw up my tmux terminal after
cating a binary file. Now my
tmux is messed up. Detaching and re-attaching doesn't help, nor does a redraw (C-b r). Running
reset only redraws the active pane, not the rest. Running
ssty sane either in- or outside
tmux doesn't help either.
Within each pane, I have normal feedback from what I type (the initial call of
reset immediately after the terminal got messed up solved this), but I can't seem to fix the status-bar.
gnome-terminal, every update to the status-bar leads to the status-bar to grow (see screenshot above). For example, this happens when I run a new application, when I switch panes, or when I resize a pane. Forcing a redraw (By
C-b r, by running
reset or via the gnome-terminal menu) shrinks back the status-bar to a single line, but it remains corrupted.
xterm, the status-bar does remain within one line, but it remains corrupted as pictured.
I'm using tmux 1.5.
- How do I fix my
This bug report from 2008 seems to describe the same issue, but it was marked as fixed. I don't know in what version it was fixed, but tmux 1.5 ought to include a fix from 2008.
