I’ve been trying to set up a workable kak installation on my work laptop, which unfortunately has to run Windows.
tmux is extremely slow, and WSL has a few known rendering bugs which make
tmux less than optimal for windowing. Windows Terminal allows for multiple panes and tabs, and it seems like if I could get this to work right, it would work decently well as a replacement for
tmux. There are command line options for splitting the terminal and making new tabs with a command.
However, I can’t seem to get kakoune to connect to an existing session when splitting. This is the command:
cmd.exe /c wt.exe -w 0 sp --profile Ubuntu-20.04 bash -c "kak -c 12345"
When I run it (either from the shell itself or from within a kakoune command) I get:
connect to /tmp/kakoune/eric/12345 failed disconnecting
The same does not happen if I run the same kakoune command from either bash or sh interactively. I’ve been able to run other commands, like “ping 22.214.171.124” or "kak " or whatever else, just fine within this terminal splitting command.
Is there something that’s required to read the session pipe that’s not quite ready at startup? Or maybe do I need to start
