Still one of my stupid questions: did you try it with Tramp? How did you
try? Have you restarted the connection from scratch? (Environment
variables are only taken into account during connection initialization)

What happens, if you do (in this order):

$ ls -al
$ export LS_COLORS=co
$ ls -al

Compatibility. Tramp cannot expect, that the remote ls command
understands "--color=none".
