I'm having problems to remotely browse my guixsd testing host using
emacs dired via tramp, the exact error message I get is:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
tramp-file-name-handler: Couldn’t find a proper ‘ls’ command
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I found this explanation on stackexchange

actually PS1 is address@hidden \w\$, it should be address@hidden:\w\$ to be 

please is there a way to declaratively customize user prompts in
config.scm or similar?

should that "unusual" prompt considered a bug to be fixed? [1]

best regards

[1] I'm going where it's defined and try to propose a patch in guix-devel
