Completion not working with option on cinammon 1.6

Postby akorx on Wed Sep 26, 2012 3:52 pm

Hi guys !

First sorry for my bad english, i'm french :mrgreen: .

I use LMDE 201204 32 bits with cinnamon on my 2 computers. Since i've installed the last update of cinnamon (1.6), the completion with TAB doesn't work on option commands but is ok with files and folders...

Example :

Before when i typed "sudo apt-get ins + TAB", the text became "sudo apt-get install" but now it's doesnt work on my two computers ; the text stays with "sudo apt-get ins"...

I've asked a friend to verify on his computer before the installation of cinammon 1.6 and it's ok... then he has decided to setup cinnamon 1.6 and now he has the same problem...

What happens? can you try on your computers? is it a general bug :roll: ?

PS : I repeat : the completion works with files and directories. For exemple if you try "vim /etc/hos + TAB" the text becomes "vim /etc/hosts"...

Can you check if you have package bash-completion installed?

I'm back... i've found where is the problem !

After installation of cinnamon 1.6, my file /etc/bash.bashrc has changed and contained :

# enable bash completion in interactive shells
# if ! shopt -oq posix; then
# if [ -f /usr/share/bash-completion/bash_completion ]; then
# . /usr/share/bash-completion/bash_completion
# elif [ -f /etc/bash_completion ]; then
# . /etc/bash_completion
# fi
# fi

If you've got the same problem, you just have to change this line to (delete the "#") :

# enable bash completion in interactive shells
if ! shopt -oq posix; then
if [ -f /usr/share/bash-completion/bash_completion ]; then
. /usr/share/bash-completion/bash_completion
elif [ -f /etc/bash_completion ]; then
. /etc/bash_completion
fi
fi

Thank for your help guys ! and long life to mint :P !!!
