Ubuntu – Remove everything from Byobu status bar


By default, the Byobu status bar contains tons of information about the distribution, updates, CPU, etc.

I want to remove all of that.

I want to only see the "tabs" of my open terminals (and the current terminal, of course).

How to do?

Best Answer

  1. Type byobu-quiet: Silence all of Byobu's status indicators and eliminate the hardstatus line
  2. Append these lines to ~/.byobu/profile.tmux:

  3. Close and start byobu.

Tested on Ubuntu 2019.04. It survives a reboot, too.
