So I tried to write second post for my new blog but to effectively work using
terminal I need terminal multiplexer. I switched to tmux from screen
because I reach point that I can’t do some things in it in easy way and
performance was poor. Also activity of tmux developers is better than for gnu
screen. I also experienced annoy buffer crashing especially after come back from
lock mode or cmatrix much but after reading few articles about alternative for
screen I switched to tmux.
It seems that in wheezy(testing) version of tmux is outdated (1.6.2). Last tag
on tmux sourceforge repo
is 1.7 and there is almost 300 additional commits on top of the master branch.
Debian unstable contain version 1.7.2 it is pretty new.
Awesome thing in tmux is emacs/vi keybiding for copy-mode. It really helps with
writing technical articles about linux stuff with this console outputs and logs
To enable copy-mode in vi like way put to
# use vi-like keys
setw -g mode-keys vi
