Byobu - Fix Scrolling Issue

If you've noticed that using your mouse wheel to scroll up in your terminal to view "the past" appears to not work correctly, then there is a simple solution.

Manually select "tmux" as the backend by entering the following command:

byobu-select-backend

You should see:

Select the byobu backend:
  1. tmux
  2. screen

Select 1 to choose tmux and you should be sorted. If you cannot use tmux and have to use screen, then you can get by with pressing f7 before scrolling.
