I'm running SuSE 7.3 with KDE 2.2.1 dual head. It works fine but there's one
little strangeness - when I press Alt-F2 on my main screen and start typing
in a command the command line autofills when it gets a match and then I can
press Enter. On the secondary screen as soon as I start typing all possible
matches from the history appear in a dropdown box below the input area and
as I type more the number of matches in the dropdown decreases. I can never
simply press Enter but instead I have to click on a entry in the dropdown
which then fills the text entry box and then I can press Enter to run the
Also, the history on each screen is different. I suppose that's logical
enough - we are creatures of habit and probably will tend to run the same
apps on the same screens (I mainly use the secondary screen to run xchat,
for instance) but the differing completion behaviours is strange, to say the
least. I've RTFM which only just mentions minicli but says absolutely
nothing about the completion or the different histories, and I've browsed
around the control centre but came across no way of configuring minicli.
Any ideas ?
