I've heard of there being autocomplete on ubuntu, but on fedora there's no autocomplete when i launch maxima.

I read somewhere that this might be fixed by launching maxima with a different runtime, and i can install different maxima runtimes, but i don't know how to launch maxima with those runtimes.

You have to launch maxima with the command rmaxima instead of just maxima.

This doesn't work very well though, a lot of commands don't seem to autocomplete.

If anyone has any insights on a file i could edit somewhere to add this, or a way to fix this, that would be great.

It is there. Use Ctrl+Tab instead of Tab alone.

Or Ctrl+K. It's all present in menu: Edit.

Are you on fedora, because i've heard that it has something to do with the runtimes or something, and that the runtime changes whether or not there's autocomplete support.

And i'm talking about cli maxima, ctrl+k is for wxmaxima.
