OK, so I’m back to DVTM. So far the only compelling reason I found to use TMUX in stead of DVTM was the ability to copy and paste from the terminal which DVTM didn’t allow. At least, so I though.
To copy and paste, from and xterm or the console, press and hold SHIFT and block whatever needs to be copied. Once again, to paste, hold SHIFT and press the middle button. Voila!
There is absolutely nothing wrong with TMUX though. I suspect had I started of with it that’s where my preference would’ve stayed. DVTM is just too familiar now.
