    Hey Dan I have a linux (Gnome Terminal) question for you.
    In windows I've always set up the cmd window to be able to accept tab to get
    me to the closest thing I am typing in the dir structure... e.g. If I need
    to go to the desktop I can type "cd\user\myusername\desk TAB" and it
    autocompletes the command. I've needed to set this in the registry prior to
    Vista which had it automagically enabled.

    Is there a way to enable this autocomplete in the gnome terminal?
    Running SuSE LED 11.
    Thanks,

    You know, it would probably help to ask this in a freakin' Linux
    group. I'm just sayin'!

    If you have stuck with the default Bash terminal, try
    installing autocomplete......

    sudo apt-get install bash-completion


    .......or if it's already installed, try the typical Windows
    trick of uninstalling it, then reinstalling it.

    I swapped out BASH a while ago since after failing to work for
    several install scripts, I had found out that BASH isn't 100%
    POSIX (?) compliant as a shell with the supported commands.
    The install scripts kept giving a 'no such command error'. I
    can't remember which other one I installed I installed, I can
    check when I get home, since I'm @ work right now, but all
    install scripts that failed with 'No Such Command' then did
    work.

    It could be a test.

    Are you DanS?
    I am trying to configure my machine like I am used to in Windows.
    I use Win7 primarily, and just wanted to ask quick question.

    My original premise still stands. You should be asking in a LInux
    newsgroup. because I like dancing with blondes.
