Raspberry Pi: Run 'screen' at Login



Recently I attached an LCD screen to my Raspberry Pi and wanted to be able to type commands via ssh and have them display on the screen.

After searching the web, I came up with the following solution to fit my needs.


It has 3 parts:

  1. You must autologin on the console, to do that, follow this: http://elinux.org/RPi_Debian_Auto_Login
  2. Launch a screen session once the user is logged in an run all commands there
    1. To do that, you need to edit your ~/.bashrc file and add this at the end:

      Where “console” is the name of the screen session you are starting
  3. When you SSH into your raspberry pi use this command to connect to the screen session that is attached to tty1 and the LCD screen:


That’s it :)!
