How to enable autocompletion in screen
You may have noticed that when you are using screen, auto-completion (bash-completion) stops working.
This can be remedied by creating a file called .screenrc in your home directory and adding to it “defshell -bash”. You can also paste the following into your console and restart your server
echo "defshell -bash" >> ~/.screenrc
Hi there, thanks for the tip, would like to say there should really be two right arrows otherwise your existing screenrc will be overwritten :
echo “defshell -bash” >> ~/.screenrc
good point! updated.
