[SOLVED] TERM environment variable not set in Guake

After upgrading to Maverick Meerkat yesterday, my Guake terminal started giving the following error on executing top:

TERM environment variable not set.

You can fix the error by doing exactly what error says – set the TERM variable. To do that execute the following in terminal:

echo -e "TERM=xterm\nexport TERM" >> ~/.bashrc

Kill the guake terminal

kill -9 $$

You don’t need to run guake again, just press your keyboard shortcut to bring back Guake and it will appear. Now you can execute commands as normal.

Cheers!
