Currently reading through this guide to get a good start on understanding
tmux. All the other commands described in the guide seem to check out, besides the one in the section
Moving on. The command:
C-b C-<arrow key>
does not seem to work on my terminal. All it does is, highlight one half of the vertical divider between my two panes (I wanted two panes split vertically). More specifically, it is what would be left after invoking a
C-b % on a vanilla instance of tmux.
Now I had a good look at the
.tmux.conf file. The pertinent code is listed below:
# pane resizing bind -r H resize-pane -L 2 bind -r J resize-pane -D 2 bind -r K resize-pane -U 2 bind -r L resize-pane -R 2
I do not understand the specific syntax that is used in the
.conf file, but could someone elaborate on that? I also tried out using
C-b L which seems to work, but
C-b D just gives the option to detach the session ((as described by the guide) and
C-b U and
C-b R do not seem to work at all.
My work environment is the raspbian-jessie without the GUI tools and is just the terminal itself (you can imagine why
tmux is useful to me).
Please don't hesitate to ask me any other questions about my environment.
