12 I'm not quite sure what you mean, but I think I didn't explain myself
13 clear.
15 There are three machines involved.
17 Server A
18 Desktop B
19 Laptop C
21 I ssh into Server A from Desktop B and Laptop C.
22 Desktop B is at work. I am not sure what terminal it uses. But it has
23 no problems with the terminal.
24 Laptop C is my personal machine, on which I run aterm usually. But
25 when I ssh into Server A, echo $TERM shows kterm. (I just tried rxvt
26 and xterm also on this machine, and $TERM is correctly listed for
27 both.)
29 Setting anything on Desktop B is unlikely to help.
30 I don't want to set anything on Server A because I worry that it might
31 break whatever is working currently from Desktop B.
32 I don't think I should set anything on Laptop C in .bash* because I
33 also use other terms occasionally and the VT.
35 If my worries are unfounded, can you tell me why?
