I am working in a remote
Linux box using
VNC.I have a single terminal with lots of tabs opened in my system. How can I split them using the
screen utility? Does the
screen utility work with already opened tabs or do I need to close all existing tabs to try it out ?
I have been through this answer but it is not working for me.I tried to open a new terminal using ctrla then c but it just doesn't do anything . I am using
Red Hat Linux and
GNOME terminal 1.16.0.
I can see
screen is there in my system as shown below:
[subhrcho@slc04lyo pcbpel]$ which screen /usr/bin/screen
But I can't find
[subhrcho@slc04lyo pcbpel]$ which tmux tmux: Command not found.
Here's the linux version :
[subhrcho@slc04lyo pcbpel]$ cat /etc/redhat-release Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.8 (Tikanga)
Edit1: Even if I close all the tabs and open a single window as suggested by @Jander, and then type ctrla then c I am seeing the character
c is just getting printed in the shell. Am I missing something obvious ?
Edit2: Turns out that I never actually ran
screen command (Thanks to @andcoz). Now I can see my terminal getting split into horizontal sections but not vertically .
