tmux-resurrect commands through tmux in -CC session #179

I run tmux -CC in iTerm2 and I do not have access to the usual key bindings via prefix (C-b) keys in the -CC session windows.

How else can I interact with tmux-resurrect to save/restore the session?

while I experimented with tmux + iTerm2 I must admit I never understood what it is about.. so this advice might or might not work:

tmux-resurrect key bindings just call plain old bash scripts. You should be able to manually run these scripts with:

  • for save: ~/.tmux/plugins/tmux-resurrect/scripts/
  • for restore: ~/.tmux/plugins/tmux-resurrect/scripts/

From the issue report on iTerm2 ( it looks like tmux-resurrect must be running tmux with -CC.

Corrected what is the expected value of the $CURRENT_DIR
It is neccessary for the cases when runnign the scripts without a
possibility of using key bindings as adviced in issue tmux-plugins#179

The case is e.g. saving the sessions for byobu and having the symlinks
created at $HOME/bin/ as:
byobu-session-restore ->

byobu-session-save ->
