3.6 Auto-completion of Commands in the bash Shell

Pressing the Tab key to complete commands automatically in the bash shell works for some commands such as ls but not for other commands such as export. You can use the following workaround to enable auto completion for all commands:

  1. Remove the bash-completion package:

    # yum remove bash-completion
  2. Run the complete -r command in the shell. To make this command persistent, you could put it in $HOME/.bashrc.
