so on most of my machines i have mrxvt to be my primary term in evilwm. every time i do the term hotkey i want a new session of tmux to start up without attaching to a previous / existing session.
here is what i added in my .bashrc to make this happen:
tmux_count=`tmux ls | wc -l` if [[ "$tmux_count" == "0" ]]; then tmux -2 else if [[ -z "$TMUX" ]]; then if [[ "$tmux_count" == "1" ]]; then session_id=1 else session_id=`echo $tmux_count` fi tmux new-session -d -s $session_id tmux attach-session -t $session_id fi fi
this snippit will also increase your tmux session id’s by one each time and not attach to an existing session id.
