csh: Cannot open /etc/termcap

Upon logging into my remote server with ssh, I started getting:

csh: Cannot open /etc/termcap.
csh: using dumb terminal settings.

There is no rxvt-unicode entry in /etc/termcap. You should specify one, but if you’re lazy, you can just

setenv TERM xterm

in your ~/.cshrc.

P.S. Nah, this doesn’t help. You have to put that line in /etc/csh.cshrc (via).

Not to forget:

Otherwise, it installs GTK 1.2.
