[SOLVED] Beginning of commands in Terminal

Postby A Future Pilot » Fri Oct 12, 2012 1:27 pm

I remember there was a setting I set up in Arch Linux a long time ago, where if I typed the beginning of a command in terminal then hit the up arrow, it would only show previous commands that began with what I typed (instead of going through ALL previous commands). Does anyone know how to do this?


EDIT: I found it here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ba ... and_tricks (The very last entry)
