I have noticed that while on Ubuntu, if I type the following:
and it isn't installed, I get the message below:
The program 'mc' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt-get install mc
However in Debian, that is not available. It just gives a "-bash: /usr/bin/mc: No such file or directory" message. How can I implement the same functionality in bash command line on Debian? Yes, I know that if it is package suggestion that I want, I can simply do a regex search using apt-cache search. However I was hoping for the simpler suggestion immediately on typing the name of the program.
As per discussions, the functionality is provided by the package command-not-found. However even after installing it, and also installing bash-completion package, this isn't available on the Debian bash shell.
