I often come across bash getting in my way when I'm doing something like this:
Apparently, bash doesn't see that
cmake can accept paths and I don't get anything suggested for completion. This happens for instance on Ubuntu 14.04 with bash
4.3.42. It doesn't happen on Ubuntu 12.04 with bash
4.2.25 and on BLFS with manually-compiled bash
As a workaround I have to insert
ls at the beginning of the line, add a space between
= and the path, and only then does bash show me the completion options. After I've written the whole path I now have not to forget to remove the added workaround.
How can I setup bash to behave without this smartness — i.e. to always suggest paths if it doesn't have any other suggestions?
