I love to use the byobu tool to manage multiple ssh sessions. It works extremely well in Ubuntu, but when I manually install it on Amazon Linux (and other distros) it often comes up with two bars rather than a single one as demonstrated in the screenshot below (selected in red):

How can I make it a single bar like the terminal below in Ubuntu?

sudo yum install tmux -y

Then select the tmux backend instead of screen. This achieves the desired effect.
