byobu and tmux plugin manager (tpm)

It seems that byobu triggers a known bug with tpm which then fails to load any plugins. Fortunately there is a simple fix, in byobu’s .tmux.conf change your plugin formatting like so:

set -g @tpm_plugins ' \
 tmux-plugins/tpm \
 nhdaly/tmux-better-mouse-mode \
 tmux-plugins/tmux-resurrect \
 '

If using the XDG directory convention, this line is also needed in .tmux.conf:

set-environment -g TMUX_PLUGIN_MANAGER_PATH "~/.config/byobu/plugins/"
