I'd like to add a new path (/usr/lib/cyrus/bin in this example) to root's $PATH (and to sudo's secure_path). I'm in Debian, by the way
First, I add it to root's $PATH, using /etc/bash.bashrc. So far so good, I get :
# which cyr_expire /usr/lib/cyrus/bin/cyr_expire # cyr<Tab><Tab> cyradm cyr_dbtool cyrdeliver cyr_deny cyr_df cyrdump cyr_expire cyr_info cyrmaster cyr_sequence cyrus cyr_userseen
Bash Completion works juste fine.
Next, I add it to sudo's secure_path, in /etc/sudoers :
I check that the new directory is handled well by sudo :
$ sudo which cyr_expire /usr/lib/cyrus/bin/cyr_expire
Ok, it works
But bash completion doesn't seem to take that new directory into account :
$ sudo cyr<Tab><Tab> cyradm cyrdeliver cyrmaster cyrus
Binaries under /usr/lib/cyrus/bin (e.g. cyr_dbtool, cyr_deny, cyr_expire, ...) aren't proposed by Bash completion when called through sudo.
What did I miss ?
