Hi, i am following the tutorials for husky robot... a Husky.html

"Open a terminal window, and use the command below, copy pasting this one won’t work! You can tab complete this command by hitting the tab key after geometry_msgs/Twist:

rostopic pub /husky_velocity_controller/cmd_vel geometry_msgs/Twist "linear: x: 0.5 y: 0.0 z: 0.0 angular: x: 0.0 y: 0.0 z: 0.0" -r 10

As mentioned in tutorial, pressing tab in ubuntu terminal 18.04 is not working for me. i am using ROS Melodic. what is missing? i am new to ubuntu and ROS.

Not really a ROS question. I suggest to search for bash completion
