Tmux basic fcns not working; Dell Inspiron, OpenBSD 5.4
System Information: OpenBSD 5.4 Generic#37 amd64, Dell Inspiron 11z, env TERM=vt220
Need help: I can start tmux but basic functionality isn't working, like Ctrl-b d. A point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
After performing a new install (I am new to OpenBSD), I tried the tmux tutorial from the OpenBSD faq:
Start tmux, start top, then Ctrl-b d results in top displaying "Command not understood". I quit top, then try Ctrl-b d, still does not detach tmux. I exit tmux.
Tmux man page says ~/.tmux.conf is default configuration file:
I do not have this dot file in my home directory. Man page also says /etc/tmux.conf is system-wide configuration file that tmux loads /if present/. This file is not located in /etc directory. I would think a dotfile in my home directory would be created after I start tmux, perhaps pulling in the system defaults, or starting with a bare bones setup. Since it does not, I think I must have selected something incorrectly on the OpenBSD install process.
Web search for tmux.conf points to archlinux forum user asking, "Where's my tmux.conf?"
It mentions another directory that might contain tmux.conf, /usr/share/tmux, but I have no such tmux directory. A "whereis tmux" shows only /usr/bin tmux.
A response in the archlinux forum above indicates that in the example directory there is no tmux.conf file:
I can accept that, but when I look at the tmux FAQ (http://tmux.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/tmux/trunk/FAQ/) it gives an answer to, "How do I see the default configuration?", by using:
$ tmux -Lfoo -f/dev/null start\; show -g
The command string above displays a list of commands referred to in the tmux man page, so it seems to be pulling a default configuration.
Again, a point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
