I have decided to try tmux as GNU screen replacement and wonder if there is a way to scroll with mouse as in xterm?

It is possible to enable native xterm scrolling with Shift + PageUp in tmux by

set -g terminal-overrides 'xterm*:smcup@:rmcup@'

But this does not work for mouse. I have option

setw -g mouse-mode on

in my tmux.conf, but this leads to tmux copy mode. With

setw -g mouse-mode off

mouse scroll doesn't work at all.

Is it possible to enable native xterm mouse scrolling while in tmux?

1 Answer 1

setw -g mode-mouse copy-mode

You still have to enter copy-mode with Shift + PageUp
