Thread: Using cd ~/ results in / and // entries for all directories

  1. #1

    Default Using cd ~/ results in / and // entries for all directories

    Hi all,

    Since I updated from 11.2 to 11.4 an annoying bug seems to have crept into the shell.

    If I type the following and hit tab I get:
    cd ~/.kde
    .kde/ .kde// .kde4/ .kde4//

    i.e. each directory has a / and // version for some reason. I have to enter a / and hit tab again to proceed.

    If however I type the following and hit tab I get:
    cd /home/tux/.kde
    .kde/ .kde4/

    i.e. correct as expected.

    The ls command does not do this.

    This seems like a bug. Any ideas on how prevent this?

    Many thanks!

    What does ls -l show?

    I've seen similar symptoms if the directories are actually symlinks.

    They are normal directories. No symlinks.
