Tmux, default shell


recently I’ve switched to Windows and trying to adapt WSL (linux subsystem) to make it play together with my habits.

This time the issue was Tmux starting bash when I need ZSH. No matter what shell was set by chsh -s command Tmux was don’t care.

The thing I found on stackoverflow is setting default-shell option of Tmux to /bin/zsh (in my case).

Here is what you need to add to your ~/.tmux.conf:

set-option -g default-shell /bin/zsh

Don’t forget to restart your Tmux or :source-file the new configuration.
