Use the tabs below for specific instructions for each of these shells.

  2. Add this to your ~/.bash_profile:

    eval "$(immuta completion bash)"


  1. Generate an _immuta completion script and save it in your $fpath:

    immuta completion zsh > /usr/local/share/zsh/site-functions/_immuta
  2. Ensure that the following is present in your ~/.zshrc:

    autoload -U compinit
    compinit -i


Generate an completion script:

immuta completion fish > ~/.config/fish/completions/

  2. To load completions for every new session, run
