[TAB]+[TAB] not working


the [TAB]+[TAB] autocomplete does not work in my environment. Any advice?

Hi @valentinasoana,

Could you please be more specific about the command you’re trying to autocomplete?

In the meantime, here are some clarifications:

  • [TAB] [TAB] means pressing the TAB key twice in quick succession.
  • This will only work for recognized system and ROS commands.
  • If you want to autocomplete for a package or custom message, ensure that
    • the package/message has been properly setup compiled with catkin_make.
    • you have run source devel/setup.bash on the terminal where you are trying to use autocomplete.

Kindly let us know if this helps, or provide more information on the command(s) that is/are not autocompleting.

Hi @bayodesegun,

I was trying to autocomplete a ROS service structure
( rosservice call /gazebo/delete_model ) and in general other ROS command.

I have now done what you suggested and it works! thank you very much for your help!
