I notice that when using the bash shell (for example) the gsettings command has tab-completion; but when I use the Z shell (zsh) gsettings has no tab-completion. How can I enable it?

The zsh-comp-gsettings plugin gives you that.

Just follow the instructions on the repo:

  1. Download the _gsettings file here, and
  2. Move (sudo mv) it into one of your $fpath directories (I put it in /usr/share/zsh/functions/Completion/Zsh/_gsettings).

Simple as that!
