Apologies if the solution is obvious but I'm stumped!
I want to launch byobu from within my Gnome 3 desktop environment on 12.04 but it's not working for me as yet. Here's what I have:
created a windows list file ~/.byobu/windows.mrb then tried to launch byobu from within the gnome terminal with:
$ BYOBU_WINDOWS=mrb byobu
But it gives me the default windows list, NOT my windows list. I followed these instructions from the wiki: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Byobu#Window_Sets
Here is a sanitised version of my windows.mrb file:
screen -t local bash screen -t name1 ssh xxx@xxx screen -t name2 ssh root@xxx screen -t name3 bash
Appreciate the time and effort.
