Bash to ZSH

January 26, 2013 | 1 Comment

A couple of weeks ago, I switched from bash to zsh on my Mac OS X machine, today, I decided it was time to do the same to my linux server running Debian Squeeze. Here is how to switch :
* As root,

aptitude install zsh

* run

chsh <username>

* Enter your user’s password when prompted
* Enter the name of the shell you wish to use : zsh
* Restart your terminal or SSH session, when you return, you will be running zsh

    I enjoy playing with my computer(s), listening to Bob Dylan (and related artists) and watching movies (especially if they were directed by Martin Scorsese or John Cassavetes). Sometimes, I play a little guitar... If not doing any of the above, I am either riding a small red bike around Paris, or, making videos. About my videomaking please check out World Wide Angle and its blog.
