I have found a Tmux configuration file that shows how to add the Git branch to the Tmux status line, however It just shows
[[ branch ]] no matter if I am in a Git repo or not. I am not sure if this requires
git-completion, but if so I'm not even sure if it is installed as it is a 'virtual' package in Ubuntu (the leading 'v' means 'virtual'):
$ aptitude search git-completion v git-completion $ sudo apt-get install git-completion Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Note, selecting 'git' instead of 'git-completion' git is already the newest version.
How might I add the branch and also the git repo name for the CWD to the Tmux status line?
