I have a problem with Texmaker on my OS (Elementary OS - Luna, with kernel is Ubuntu 12.04). When I type a few words of the command (for example, the word \begin{document}), it doesn't appear in the list of possible commands as usual. Instead, it waits until I type the full of the word or whenever I make the backspace some letters.

Surely, that's no the way the Texmaker autocompletion feature is supposed to work... What am I missing?

Note: I have this problem with both TexMaker installed from software manager (version 3.2) and downloaded from the source (version 4.1).

  • Did you Check Configure Texmaker-->Editor-->Completion to have auto complete entries appear ? – texenthusiast Jan 18 '14 at 20:52
  • yes, of course. – Anh-Thi DINH Jan 19 '14 at 7:54

I have found the answer. It's because of my input method. I use the ibus-unikey (an input method to type Vietnamese). When I quit ibus, everything comes back to normal in Texmaker. The new problem is that how I can use both ibus and Texmaker.

  • You probably should add the detail to your question, rather than an answer. – egreg Jan 19 '14 at 13:27
  • If that, this is not a question? – Anh-Thi DINH Feb 12 '14 at 15:39
