Issues with auto completion not working on remote server?

Hi folks,
I’m having an issue with auto completion not working at all on Jupyter Lab 3.0.9 when pressing the tab key on keyboard while writing.

I have jupyter-lab installed in a conda environment along with widgetsnbextension and ipympl on my remote server and my usual usage involves accessing it via my home laptop for work on Chrome, but the fact that auto completion is not working is driving me nuts for two reasons:

  • I haven’t figured out why auto-completion is nor working, searching github issues reveals that it should be working, at least on the newer jupyter-lab versions

  • This issue impairs my working abilities, which essentially slows me down a lot

Anyone else who had the same problem and managed to solve it?
