In a different distro of linux I had bash tab suggestions enabled. Now I am using Konsole with csh on my pc. how do we enable tab completion in csh?

By tab suggestions I mean that if I type /home/abc_ followed by tab twice, it should show the suggestions abc_1 abc_2.

If there is only one option then then tab completion works but in case of multiple options I want to see all suggestions.

Type ctrl-D once you started typing and you'll get all the suggestions. However, hitting ctrl-D without first typing at least one letter will close the terminal.
