konsole autocomplete

this is really annoying, you know what is TAB no? yes the freaking button that help you to autocomplete commands on konsole…

well this was broken on alpha2 , probably because the installation was interrupted   in the middle scaring me  a lots, well it’s an alpha…

so how could i fix this ? googling 🙂

first check if you have  bash-completion  if not :

sudo apt-get install bash-completion nano

(nano is a text editor ) after that

kdesudo kate /etc/bash.bashrc

if it doesn’t work

sudo nano /etc/bash.bashrc

you have to search

#if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ]; then
# . /etc/bash_completion

and remove # form the second line so :

if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ]; then
. /etc/bash_completion

close konsole open konsole it should be working now HAPPY TABBING
