Richard gave me a call today to show the wonders of tmux. I am using Windows, and unfortunately, right off the bat I couldn’t see color and there were a bunch of accented as dividing the panes.

After some trial and error and finding this post on the subject we got it working. The key is to configure SecureCRT to use xterm + ANSI colors and set the character set to UTF-8 and “Use Unicode line drawing code points”.

Hooray! I’ll be trying out tmux in day-to-day use to see if it will replace or augment screen for me.
