For a single session, I type:
For activating it by default, edit .bashrc at the top of your home
directory (note it's a hidden file). You may find references to that
script, uncomment from the ligne "if [...]" to "fi" included.
If not found, add these:
if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ]; then
Changes will take effect at next opened terminal.

These are the rules, call the bash_completion script to invoke them.
