apt auto completion not working

Post by thiagonatanael »

I found that a new refreshed install of DietPi does not come with apt auto completion working by default, to throublesoot this do this actions:


Then go to:
4 - Advanced Options

And then:
set the two options (APT cache and APT lists) to [On disk]

After that do:
sudo apt update

Now the command 'sudo apt install ja[TAB][TAB]' will work!

Maybe you can have a look. System default is APT cache and APT lists set to [On disk] according the system dialog. However APT cache is set to [Disabled] . Probably it was deactivated to reduce I/O and SD Card usage. But I'm not sure.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
