When defining the application started by a shortcut, the tab key works for completion, but it doesn't show immediatly the result, you have to press another key. e.g. the terminal, you have to type /boot/system/apps/Ter -- tab then space -- It would be nice :

  • To have an immediate display of the result (when only one result exists)
  • In case of several answers possible, pressing tab several times makes the path going through those choices.

This was tested on hrev48397.

This seems to work just fine here (hrev48340, gcc2hybrid). Did you test on a clean install?

Hmmm. I have blacklisted some modules, I guess this thing has nothing to do with the issue.

But, I used a script provided by waddlesplash to keep my installation up-to-date with the nightly repos ( . So if nothing has changed between 48397 and yesterday, we can say it's a clean install.

What would make the install "not clean" ?

In some case of updates you can be left with old version of setting files. In this case I am thinking of /etc/inputrc which must contain these two lines for tab completion to work:

set mark-symlinked-directories on
set mark-directories on

We may need more changes to this to make sure all settings are set as they should. But it didn't change since yesterday (these lines were added some week ago) so this is not your exact problem.

Indeed, I do have these lines in my inputrc file.
