screen error “Cannot open your terminal ‘/dev/pts/0’ – please check”

if  you was initially logged as a user (root/ else)  and later switched to a different user, while trying to run ‘screen’ you may get this error message.

So, to get rid of this error message, login as the user, you want to work as.

 

 

So, you like to work as user ‘stack’ login as the user ‘stack’ directly rather than logging as ‘root’ first and then switch to ‘stack’.

 

Otherwise, as the  switched user, run following command:

script /dev/null  [2]

and then run the screen.
