So I (somehow) just started using tmux a couple days ago, and (needless to say) it's amazing. I have a nice little initialization script that pulls up all my rails/db/vim etc stuff and a lot of that was thanks to answers here. However, I'm still having a couple relatively minor problems, one of which I hope someone can help me with here. Basically, the dividers are rendering in a very strange manner. They have odd special characters in the middle (similar to �) and the lines wrap around to two lines when I switch to certain panes. I have attached a couple screenshots for reference. Any idea what might be going on?

Edit: I might should add I'm ssh-ing to my Ubuntu 13.10 from ChromeOS.



fuser `tty`

to list all processes writing in the same virtual terminal ?

  • only one thing: /dev/pts/23: 11134 – Californian Dec 1 '13 at 22:03
  • And what does it show on the other side of the ssh connection ? If you type mesg, what is shown ? y or n ? – user2987828 Dec 2 '13 at 8:01
  • It displays is y. You mean on the Ubuntu side, right? The machine I'm ssh-ing into? ChromeOS' shell doesn't have mesg apparently. – Californian Dec 2 '13 at 9:37
  • Then try if mesg n solves something. What is the current value of $TERM on both sides ? – user2987828 Dec 2 '13 at 9:45
  • mesg n returned nothing for me. $TERM is xterm on chromeos and I played around with it on ubuntu until I got it to xterm-256color (originally it was screen-256color). – Californian Dec 7 '13 at 8:16
