In my previous linux installations the bash auto-completion has always worked without problems. If I wanted to do anything to files, giving a prefix of the filename and pressing tabulator listed all that matched the prefix but it also repeated the prompt below it with my command and prefix, so that I could immediately continue typing.
Now I have updated my system to kubuntu 18.04 and the auto-completion doesn't work as fluently anymore. What is even stranger, the behaviour is unpredictable like it depended on the konsole. If the command is
less, it works always correctly (as described above), but if the command is
mv, the behaviour varies. Sometimes it works correctly, but often it shows a list of matching files with more (hiding my prompt) and I have to type q to exit more and be able to continue. A small thing, but annoying since it requires extra typing.
I see that
but I haven't done any changes to this.
Question: What causes this unpredictable behaviour? How can I fix it?
