I'm trying to set fish as my default shell. It's installed on the system through apt-get and is listed in
> which fish /usr/bin/fish > grep fish /etc/shells /usr/bin/fish
chsh to switch from Bash to fish:
> chsh -s /usr/bin/fish
And my default shell has been changed in
> grep "myusername" /etc/passwd myusername:x:1000:1000:Oh Spite,,,:/home/myusername:/usr/bin/fish
Awesome. Then I logged out and rebooted. Login shells (e.g., virtual TTYs and SSH) now start fish.
And yet, when I start a terminal with either gnome-terminal or urxvt, a bash session is started. Additionally, the
SHELL variable is still set to
Interestingly, Terminator does use fish as the default shell. But even in that session
SHELL is set to
/bin/bash. If I start urxvt from Terminator, urxvt starts a Bash session.
What else do I need to do to change my default shell to fish?
(See also this question, but this is not a duplicate because I have followed those instructions and rebooted. Many times now.)
