Thread: need help with screen

    Question need help with screen

    hi,

    i have a problem with screen. i could use screen only as root, but not as an other user.

    backgroundinfo: the system runs on a root server and i had to install screen. i used the command yast -i screen.

    could anyone help me to configure screen, that i could use it as a normal user?

    greetz, patrick

    its a root server in the internet and the system is opensuse 11.0. i dont use grafical systems like gnome or kde. its only textmode via ssh2

    i have a few screens started as root. if i type screen -r as a normal user i get the follow message:

    Cannot open your terminal '/dev/pts/2' - please check.

    What should i do?

    It should work for every user out of the box without any configuration,
    at least it did on every system I ever tried. (Several SuSEn included.)

    What happens if you run it as a normal user?

    Try breaking it up in order to see whether the problem is with "screen"
    or with the command "./coduo_lnxded" you try to run:

    First test basic "screen" functionality by running it without any
    arguments, see if you get a screen, if you can detach and reattach.
    If reattaching fails, try "screen -list" to get screen's opinion on
    whether the session still exists.

    Then try "screen -dmS testserver" but still without giving a command
    to run. See if you can attach to the screen session and get a command
    line. If attaching fails, try "screen -list" to get screen's opinion on
    whether the session still exists.

    Next, try to run the command "./coduo_lnxded +set ..." manually within
    that screen session and look for any errors it might report.

    My, my, you are impatient. Not even 12 hours after my last reply, and you're already nagging.
