Welcome to tmux!

tmux is a terminal multiplexer: it enables a number of terminals to be created, accessed, and controlled from a single screen. tmux may be detached from a screen and continue running in the background, then later reattached.

This release runs on OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, Linux, OS X and Solaris.

Dependencies

tmux depends on libevent 2.x, available from this page.

It also depends on ncurses, available from this page.

Installation

From release tarball

To build and install tmux from a release tarball, use:

./configure && make
sudo make install

tmux can use the utempter library to update utmp(5), if it is installed - run configure with --enable-utempter to enable this.

From version control

To get and build the latest from version control - note that this requires autoconf, automake and pkg-config:

git clone https://github.com/tmux/tmux.git
cd tmux
sh autogen.sh
./configure && make
