Re: [opensuse] Different TERM for ssh and xterm?

For ssh (putty) I need TERM = linux to have all the linedraw signes
and F-keys working right.
In local xterms I need TERM = xterm.

Is there a way to fix this without changing TERM manually everytime I
log in or open a xterm?

Can't putty export variables somehow?

Quick and dirty you could set in ~/.profile
something like

if test -n "$SSH_TTY" ;then
export TERM=linux

But do you want this if you ssh from xterm?
