How to: Fix xfce tab completion on ubuntu


Performed sudo apt-get remove ubuntu-desktop and then installed xfce.

Now, I can't use tab-complete in any Terminal app in xfce when using VNC to access the box. It still works properly over SSH.


# Open with a text editor ( vim, nano, gedit, etc ) the file


# Find the line

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

# Replace it with

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

# Restart the X session
