chsh - change your login shell
chsh [ -s shell ] [ -l ] [ -u ] [ -v ] [ username ]
chsh is used to change your login shell. If a shell is not given on the command line, chsh prompts for one.
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.
Specify your login shell.
