I have just installed byobu. When I start it the status bar keeps loading? Any idea of what to do?
So this is actually a duplicate of this question:
As it turns out, I just committed a new fix to Byobu today that should help solve this problem. You'll need a Byobu version of 5.59 or newer. When you see this problem, try pressing Alt-F5. That should disable UTF-8 support in Byobu.
Full disclosure: I am the author and maintainer of Byobu.
