To be clear, this isn't a
screen issue, I'm sure it's a general shell issue.
On a new Ubuntu 12.04 server, I'm currently logged into a terminal in which I want to run the
screen command with my custom
~/.screenrc file. I
scp'ed my .rc file to the Ubuntu machine and ran
screen, but I can tell that it didn't read my .rc file. I tried several things in the current session:
sourcethe file and other weird environment variable tricks
The problem was easily fixed by creating a new
ssh session into the Ubuntu server and running
screen, but I'm curious - how do I make the .rc file 'work' in the original terminal that I was using before copying the .rc file?
