Tab path completion does not work (at least on Ubuntu and AFAIK Arch) with
sudo mount <whatever>
The iso file I am trying to mount is not in
/etc/fstab. If I just type
the completion works (but of course the command fails as I am not root). Apparently it is
sudo that breaks it.
How can make completion work with sudo?
It is surprising that with
sudo umount <whatever>
completion works. How is it achieved? Does it look into
Solution: I just put a shell script into
/usr/local/bin that calls
sudo mount ... with the arguments passed to it. Completion works when calling this script since there is no
sudo in the way.
