This looks really useful thank you. I got stuck the other day when I ran a compile by ssh that took 3.5 hours (twice as long as I expected) and I had to leave my laptop on. I'm going to give this a go.cashaw wrote: It allows you to create many terminal tty instances which can be connected to or disconnected from whenever or where-ever you want. So for example, you may want to download some large files or torrents which will take hours but don't want to leave your laptop connected to an SSH session whilst the download completes, you can use the 'screen' command to start a new terminal session then disconnect from it, close down your laptop and re-connect to the same session at a later time or from any other computer.
Ah yes, sorry about that. In which case, yes. Screen is useful.cashaw wrote:Of course, but they are not accessible via SSH as I understand, I run my Pi headless.

Both are quite different, if you want multiwindow with mouse support with tab and more of a 'graphical' feel to it, tmux would be the choice. Screen seems stronger at multiuser and sessions attach detach, and a little less 'visually' oriented.. Two different beast, I found tmux easier to learn at first then switched to screen later on...obarthelemy wrote:After spending quite some time on screen, I've been told tmux is where it's at now ?
