I want to keep an application running in the background when I log out.

That was working flawlessly with screen, but since today for some unknown reason the screen session is killed when I log out.

Any ideas?


If you need a "quick fix" and you currently can not use screen. Have a look at tmux.

Not a great solution, but it might just help you for the moment.

  • actually I went a completely different way now - Docker! It's far from optimal as it is quite some overhead to set up a docker container, but it works, thx... – user16794 Nov 24 '18 at 20:18
