Bug Description

Binary package hint: guake

Today i noticed that every time i try to run nano it fails with: "Error opening terminal: unknown."

and i guess there may be many more related problems... tried just now with "top":
"TERM environment variable not set."

everything works fine in gnome-terminal (echo $TERM == xterm) but not in guake (echo $TERM == dumb)
