Byobu seems very simple and easy to use compared to others I have tried. I would like to start Byobu and have my commands launched in the correct window. Is this possible?
From the documentation:
Users can create a list of windows to launch at startup in $DATA/windows. This file is the same syntax as ~/.screenrc, each line specifying a window using the "screen" command, as described in Screen's manual.
Is this what you are trying to achieve?
