CHSH(1)                     Linux Reference Manual                     CHSH(1)



NAME
       chsh - change your login shell

SYNOPSIS
       chsh [-s shell] [-l] [-u] [-v] [username]

DESCRIPTION
       chsh is used to change your login shell.  If a shell is not given on the command line, chsh prompts for one.

   VALID SHELLS
       chsh  will  accept the full pathname of any executable file on the system.  However, it will issue a warning if
       the shell is not listed in the /etc/shells file.  On the other hand, it can also be  configured  such  that  it
       will only accept shells listed in this file, unless you are root.

OPTIONS
       -s, --shell shell
              Specify your login shell.

       -l, --list-shells
              Print the list of shells listed in /etc/shells and exit.

       -u, --help
              Print a usage message and exit.

       -v, --version
              Print version information and exit.
