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