How to Manage Multiple Terminal Sessions with tmux


This tutorial provides an introduction to using tmux on Linux.

The tmux command-line utility is a useful tool for managing multiple terminal sessions in Linux, according to OSTechnix.

Tmux is a terminal multiplexer that "lets you switch easily between several programs in one terminal, detach them (they keep running in the background) and reattach them to a different terminal," says the project page. This ability to work with multiple programs together in one terminal means tmux functions "a bit like a window manager."

This tutorial provides specific examples of tmux usage in Linux, including:

  • Creating and detaching sessions
  • Splitting session windows
  • Switching between panes
  • Autostarting sessions
