Navigation hotkeys in bash


Hello,
What are the navigation hotkeys in bash shell? For example if I want to check which are the folders begining with 'g' in my working directory, I can press <alt><+>, and It will display them like this:
# cd g <alt><+>
gnome
gnome2
... etc

The question is what was the hotkey for auto complete? So when I type:
# cd g <some button>
It will auto complete It:
# cd gnome

Hi, you may need a package bash-complete

Tab is the button you need to autocomplete in bash.
