    Default apt-get auto complete

    Just a small thing, if that's possible

    In Ubuntu auto complete works for apt-get:

    if you type "apt-get install dovecot" and then tab two times:

    Code:
    root@ubuntu:~$ apt-get install dovecot
    dovecot          dovecot-dev      dovecot-pop3d    
    dovecot-common   dovecot-imapd    dovecot-postfix
    It doesn't work in Backtrack.

    Thx

    EDIT: Found solution for BT4 Pre-Final:
    source /etc/bash_completion

    Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".

    bash_completion is a cool utility, you can easily expand it to work with your own programs.
