# Obtaining 256 colors to operate in tmux

I have 256 colors functioning simply great in konsole,. I assumed I would certainly offer tmux a shot due to the fact that, unlike screen, it appears to sustain vi setting. Nonetheless I locate that the colors of my punctual show up and also this is more than likely due to the fact that I have a 256 shade setting motivate. What do I require to do to get tmux to identify all 256 colors?

Try setup 256 colors clearly in your bashrc or zshrc :

export TERM=xterm-256color


or

export TERM=screen-256color


If you have troubles with tmux unclear the history colors appropriately when making use of the screen term setup, you can attempt :

export TERM=screen-256color-bce

The Tmux FAQ clearly discourages establishing TERM to anything apart from screen or screen - 256color in your shell init documents, so do not do it!

Below's what I make use of :

~\$ which tmux
tmux: aliased to TERM=xterm-256color tmux


and also in in my.tmux.conf :

set -g default-terminal "screen-256color"


Aliasing tmux to "tmux -2" need to additionally do the method.
