    Apt install preview

    Hi everyone...
    here is my question:
    When i boot Knoppix and use "apt-get install " and type only the first letters and then press tab 2 times, then i can see all the avalibel pack`s (from my apt sources) beginning with same first letters, but when i install Debain by myself, then i can`t see the avalibel Pack`s
    Got anyone a solution???

    Edit the /etc/bash.bashrc and uncomment this section.

    Code:
    # enable bash completion in interactive shells
        if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ]; then
            . /etc/bash_completion
        fi

    Dear Friends,
    a couple of months i tried (hard) to have same very good bash-autocompletion as knoppix has at my libranet (debian) box.
    The result : NOWAY. I did not achieve same functionality at all.
    Really I don't kno why but if someone can help us PLEASE DO IT.

    Best Regards
    Mike Kranidis
