When I press the "é" key multiple times on my keyboard, here is what tmux print (notice the spaces) :

arcanis@~ > é é é é é é é é é é é é é

It also broke emacs when the file contains utf8 characters.

My locale is :

arcanis@~ > locale
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=

How can I fix this ?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

  • Is tmux itself started in a UTF-8 locale? – Gilles Oct 21 '12 at 23:55
  • @Gilles Yes, the original locales are fr_FR.UTF-8 (except LC_ALL which is empty), and tmux is started using -u. – Nison Maël Oct 22 '12 at 0:31

    Try using the tmux command utf8 on and see if that helps. – Keith Oct 22 '12 at 2:06

.tmux.conf

set -g utf8 on

Fixed the exact same issue for me.
