  1. You should append to the `terminal-overrides` setting, instead of overwriting it:

    set -ga terminal-overrides 'xterm*:[email protected]:[email protected]'

    Apart from that, I find it better to not have tmux set/overwrite the $TERM, but to massage it in my shell’s config: https://github.com/blueyed/oh-my-zsh/blob/9378846e27c41843dcca644e79160be26a4e0236/zshrc#L266-L274
