    Alsamixer via ssh // Error opening terminal: xterm-256color

    Hello,
    with the following system:
    piCorePlayer | piCorePlayer v6.1.0 | www v0009 | linux 4.19.122-pcpCore_v7 | piCore v10.3pCP | Squeezelite v1.9.6-1206-pCP
    and a USB DAC,
    squeezelite GUI sys:
    Notes for your DAC.
    Sorry, you cannot control a USB DAC from this page.
    Login via ssh.
    Use 'alsamixer' to change the ALSA output level.
    Save mixer settings by using Save button below.


    But when trying to open the alsamixer, the follwoing message comes in Linux Mint 18.3 Terminal:
    Error opening terminal: xterm-256color.

    How to solve this?

    This works for me:

    First set the terminal mode: export TERM=xterm

    Then you can run alsamixer.

    Or just combine the two commands like so: export TERM=xterm && alsamixer
