Error: Starting GNU Screen in Ubuntu

I tried to run screen this morning and got the error
Cannot make directory '/var/run/screen': Permission denied

The solution was simple:
$ sudo mkdir /var/run/screen $ sudo chmod 775 /var/run/screen $ sudo chgrp utmp /var/run/screen

Found the solution here.

  1. sudo /etc/init.d/screen-cleanup start
