I have the following problem while using tmux under Ubuntu. I enabled mouse-mode to switch between panes by clicking the mouse, but the switching is not always successful, and random characters appear in my terminal.
My tmux.conf file:
unbind % bind | split-window -h bind - split-window -v # Mouse mode set -g mode-mouse on set -g mouse-resize-pane on set -g mouse-select-pane on set -g mouse-select-window on set mouse-utf8 off # Active pane border colour set-option -g pane-active-border-fg yellow # Load layout bind q source-file ~/.tmux/dev_laptop bind Q source-file ~/.tmux/dev_mon # Show Pane Number set-option -g status-left '#P'
I'm using the latest tmux (version 1.7), and the problem is terminal independent (tried it with xterm, gnome-terminal, guake).
Others experienced the same problem, but the solutions didn't work for me:
2) Why are random letters inserted in my tmux session?
