i'm a newbie concerning configuration of screen so this a question about
distro standard configurations:

when i ssh from my debian box to a redhat server and start a screen there
window title and tab of my gnome-terminal show what i think is the
"hardstatus string". when i start screen locally in debian or via ssh on a
debian server no such thing happens although there is a "hardstatus string"
configuration in /etc/screenrc.

whats the difference in the standard configurations?

screen version is always 4.0.3

relevant screenrc lines IMO:

debian 6:

# Set the hardstatus prop on gui terms to set the titlebar/icon title
termcapinfo xterm*|rxvt*|kterm*|Eterm* hs:ts=\E]0;:fs=\007:ds=\E]0;\007
# use this for the hard status string
hardstatus string "%h%? users: %u%?

I would try adding 'hardstatus on' (in its own line) there as well and
see if that helps.


i tried that before posting (i know there's a default of "off" in debian). didn't make a difference. and from the comment in screenrc ("turn sending of screen messages to hardstatus off") i guess that this switch serves a different purpose
