I bought VPS with ubuntu 12.04 server minimal. When I logged in, there is very simple command line by default. How install full-function command-line with prompt and etc?

  • Why do you think it is not functional? What functionality do you expect? What shell are you using? – dawud Apr 22 '13 at 9:41
  • as example, auto completion by tab – mystdeim Apr 22 '13 at 9:43

You probably have sh or something installed. Do this:

apt-get install bash bash-completion command-not-found

After change the default shell for you user:

usermod -s /bin/bash USERNAME
  • You should re-login after this. – melsayed Apr 22 '13 at 9:45
