							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  sys-
       tem.   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 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.
