Learning tmux

Tips on learning tmux as I moved my primary toolchain to Ubuntu 20.04 on WSL2

Getting started #

Normally I give my passphrase for the private key on the first ssh invocation and then I am not asked for the passphrase (in this and all other bash sessions).

However, under tmux, I am asked for the passphrase over and over even in the same bash (same tmux pane).
With the answer which worked for me:

$ tmux new -s temp
$ ssh-agent
$ ssh-add
