Change bash how shell by default


#1

Hello, the first I am maxxcan and I love Haiku since I knew it five o six years ago. Now I am trying to write some tutorials in spanish to newbies.

In Linux my main shell is zsh and I see that in Haiku we have zsh and fish. The problem is that I can´t change to diferent shell by default.

Anyone can help me?

Thank you very much and happy new year

I haven’t tried to do that since the BeOS days so I’m not sure if it still works the same. But this is how you used to do it:

Edit the passwd file located /boot/system/settings/etc

At the end of every line should be :
/bin/bash
Change it as you like and reboot your computer.

Would be fine then you does not make a new website for it. You can send your tutorials to me or loglas from the besly knowledge base: http://www.besly.de, so your tutorials are on a position people can find it faster.
