Ok but I did include this on the remote side in .profile:

   alias ls='ls --color=never'

And if I log to the remote host, then the alias is effective.

Since tramp is using absolute path to call ls(1) then the alias has no
effect, I think.

I searched in the documentation to see which var can be customized in
order to append '--color=never' to the ls command but I fail to find
the answer.

Could you give me a pointer ?
