Multiple apps on same console ?


Hi there,

a few months ago I downloaded that awesome packages, I don't remember the name but it allowed me basically to run multiple commands from the same SSH session. Kind of a window program, I could switch windows, work with say 4 or 8 programs running at the same time on the same SSH stream.

The most important is that when I launched a command via SSH and then closed the connection, the command would still run.

What's the name of that package again?

There are other similar programs too. I was recently looking at tmux.

About a year ago I switched from using screen to tmux. I used to think screen was great (still do), but tmux is simply brilliant. If you use screen but find it somewhat awkward or clunky or think that there is something not quite right about it, I highly recommend you give tmux a go.

@acid_kewpie: "screen" is bad to search for, but the window manager "awesome" is even more annoying in that respect.

Cheers,

Evo2.
