So I made my ~/.tmux.conf as suggested in other threads in two different ways
tmux show -g | cat > ~/.tmux.conf tmux show -g > ~/.tmux.conf
I tested them both and they both give me an error:
/root/.tmux.conf:25: unknown command: followed by every setting when loading from the first line to the second to last line, the last line being the binding that I added:
bind -n C-x setw synchronize-panes
Good news is that my binding works...
I have zero idea what is causing the error, but the fact that my binding works makes me think that you might only want to add additional configurations other then the default in the .tmux.conf
Any help with this issue or clarification will be greatly appreciated.
