How to Mouse Wheel Scroll with tmux

less than 1 minute read

I’ve been making the move from screen to tmux, and after getting Xcode installed on my ancient Mac Mini running Snow Leopard, it was time to configure it properly.

I started off using rjbs’s tmux.conf, but I’m a really big fan of 2 finger scrolling and having to ^a [ to be able to scroll is a bit of a pain.

Following this stackoverflow question that got me started, but it wasn’t until following the link to this gist with this configuration parameter:

set-window-option -g mode-mouse on

that started it working.
