I have just started using tmux 1.8 recently, after working with screen for a while. After reading things here and there on the internet, I came up with following ~/.tmux.conf However when I open vim and try to scroll with mouse tmux scrolls through its scroll buffer instead of sending the scroll command to vim. Is there a workaround? Following is my config:
set-option -g default-shell /bin/bash set -g status-utf8 on set -g status-keys vi set -g status-interval 1 set -g prefix ` bind ` send-key ` bind-key -n F9 resize-pane -Z bind-key -n F11 prev bind-key -n F12 next-window bind-key | split-window -h bind-key - split-window -v set -s escape-time 0 set -g history-limit 100000 set -g mode-mouse on set -g mouse-resize-pane on set -g mouse-select-pane on set -g mouse-select-window on set-option -g mouse-utf8 on set -g status-bg '#666666' set -g status-fg '#aaaaaa' set -g status-left '' set -g status-right '' set-option -sg escape-time 1
Found the answer. I had to set my term to xterm, it was getting value of screen. When I do following:
and inside vim:
I had no issues in scroll inside the file opened in vim under tmux. If I have to scroll to history buffer I do (prefix) [ and then use mouse. It works like a charm!
