Using the system clipboard with tmux on OS X is broken. I really like tmux but having copy and paste is kind of important for me. Here is my attempt to get it back with a simple bash script until I find something better. The approach is to take a named pipe and feed it the contents of "tmux showb". A bash script will manage the pipe and because this script is initialized from a normal session it will write to the system clipboard just fine.
In my .bash_profile...
pipe4tmux=/tmp/pipe4tmux alias tcp="tmux showb > $pipe4tmux" if [[ ! -p $pipe4tmux ]]; then ~/pipe4tmux.sh & fi
And in pipe4tmux.sh...
#!/bin/bash pipe4tmux=/tmp/pipe4tmux echo "Starting named pipe $pipe4tmux" trap "rm -f $pipe4tmux" EXIT if [[ ! -p $pipe4tmux ]]; then mkfifo $pipe4tmux fi while true do pbcopy < $pipe4tmux done echo "Quitting pipe4tmux $pip4tmux"
