I am using the below configuration - setw -g mouse on

to use mouse scrolling within tmux sessions.

However, I notice the scrolling is not as smooth as an the Terminal.

Is there any tweaking/configuration i need to apply in tmux config to make the user experience better?


Tmux runs in a terminal window - so scrolling can only be done line by line.

If it is that important to you and you are using a Mac you can try iTerm2. It has support to use tmux in control mode so I imagine scrolling would be done at the UI level (haven't tested it though).

For Linux look at this answer.
