Description Patrice Guay 2005-04-23 20:30:37 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050421 Red Hat/1.0.3-1.4.1.TL1 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
Under konsole, hitting TAB is not enough to obtain auto-completion. You need to press another key before completion is displayed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open konsole
2. Type: more /etc/X11/xorg.co
3. Press Enter. You get an error message because file doesn't exist
4. Type again: more /etc/X11/xorg.co
5. Press Tab to get auto-completion


Actual Results:  Nothing is displayed. If you press another key, say "x", you have:
more /etc/X11/xorg.confx

Expected Results:  When I press Tab, I should get:
more /etc/X11/xorg.conf

I shouldn't have to type another key before seeing the auto-completed command line.

Additional info:

This problem is not present under other graphical console programs like xterm and gnome-console.

sorry, i have tried to reproduce this problem on fresh rhel4 installation. It
works fine for me. I used the auto-completion everyday with konsole and have not
seen this problem. It's surely a bash config problem here.
