At work, I have a few legacy servers that I log into as root, and then
su down to a user. I continue to run into an issue where after doing so, I am unable to run
screen as this user.
I don't want to open
screen as root, because then I have to consciously
su down the user every new shell, and I often forget.
The question is, is there an easier resolution to this than I'm currently aware of? My current solution is to find my terminal pts number, then set it chmod 666.
I'm looking for something akin to X11's
xhost ACL management, if such a thing exists for this situation.
