A Useful Set of Profiles for GNU Screen on the Ubuntu Server

Registered by Dustin Kirkland  on 2009-02-05

screen-profiles includes a set of profiles for the GNU screen window manager. These profiles are quite useful on server machines which are not running a graphical desktop. The 'screen' command provides a number of advanced features are not necessarily exposed in the default profile. These profiles provide features such as status bars, clocks, notifiers (reboot-required, updates-available), etc. The profile-switcher allows users to quickly switch their .screenrc to any of the available profiles.
