AutoComplete not working using XRDP XFCEUbuntu/Linux

This post is for if you are using XFCE4 (xubuntu-desktop) and you’re having issues with auto completion.  This is also taking under consideration that auto completion is working in SSH.

If it’s not working for either try
sudo apt-get remove autocompletion && sudo apt-get install autocompletion


I the problem still persists then, try using CTRL+I for the time being then you need to open up a session whether it being  ssh or rdp and do the following:



find the line

<property name=”&lt;Super&gt;Tab” type=”string” value=”switch_window_key”/>

and change it to

<property name=”&lt;Super&gt;Tab” type=”empty”/>

reboot or whatever and then tab will work properly!

I have no idea why but when using vnc this file seems to override tab’s normal behaviour and makes it into a switch window key.
