Ubuntu 9.10: using screen in tty1-tty6


Hi all, I am running Ubuntu 9.10 64bit and I am trying to use screen (the program for sharing a command line between two computers) on tty1 (or tty2-6, just not in a GUI tty). When I am in tty7 and I run screen I have no problem but when trying to use it in tty1 I receive the error "There is no screen to be attached matching [session_name]".

The commands I am using are verbatim from this guide.
The reason I do not want to use a GUI desktop is because I am running Cuda programs that effectively use all of my GPU processing power making the GUI useless.

Any help is greatly appreciated; thank you!

What does screen -ls show you from tty1? It should show all your current sessions.

I see now--I need to be logged in as the same user locally and remotely via ssh to connect to the screen session. (I was logged in as root locally and as a regular user over ssh.) Thank you Matir, the output of "screen -ls" gave it away.
