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
	      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.

SEE ALSO
       login(1), passwd(5), shells(5)
