I don't like my terminal's autocomplete behaviour, to be honest I like windows' cmd behaviour better. Does bash (default shell in ubuntu) come with several options of the autocomplete behaviours? How can I change it?


See https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7179642/how-can-i-make-bash-tab-completion-behave-like-vim-tab-completion It explains how to set up bash to work more like windows, where it cycles through the possible completions.

  • I seem to have no ~\.inputrc yet, is this normal? By the way what other options are there besides those in the link? Is there a way to get the list or documentation?

  • Create an ~/.inputrc. Gnu's official documentation: gnu.org/software/bash/manual/html_node/… Apr 28 '13 at 16:04
