Bash on VNC session – Tabs do not auto complete

Problem : Pressing Tab keys not auto-completing when using Bash within a VNC session (to guest VM running on Ubuntu and XFCE.)

Reason : Unknown, possibly tabs are caught and consumed by the window switch handler.

Fix:

  1. vi ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml
  2. search for
    • <property name=”&lt;Super&gt;Tab” type=”string” value=”switch_window_key”/>
  3. Change the above line to –
    • <property name=”&lt;Super&gt;Tab” type=”empty”/>
  4. Reboot the machine.
