Linux Screen Remote Login Issue

16 Aug

If you ever get the below error while you try to activate screen (Unix Screen Utility) as a different user rather than your login .  (for ex: i logged in as john and sudo admin and type screen at prompt).

Cannot open your terminal ‘/dev/pts/7’ – please check

1) Exit out of the user First.

2) cd /dev/pts/7

3) chmod +0666 /dev/pts/7

4) then sudo su user

5) type Screen. then it’ll work.

Please let me know if this doesn’t work..
