CHSH(1)                     Linux Reference Manual                     CHSH(1)



NAME
       chsh - change your login(1,3,5) shell

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

DESCRIPTION
       chsh  is  used  to change your login(1,3,5) shell.  If a shell is not given on
       the command line, chsh prompts for one.

   VALID SHELLS
       chsh will accept(2,8) the full pathname of any executable file(1,n) on  the  sys-
       tem.   However,  it  will issue a warning if(3,n) the shell is not listed in(1,8)
       the /etc/shells file.  On the other hand, it  can  also  be  configured
       such  that  it  will only accept(2,8) shells listed in(1,8) this file(1,n), unless you
       are root.

OPTIONS
       -s, --shell
              Specify your login(1,3,5) shell.

       -l, --list-shells
              Print the list of shells listed in(1,8) /etc/shells and exit.

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

       -v, --version
              Print version(1,3,5) information and exit.
