Just found information about a "new" shell that appears to be cooler than bash.
Why Z Shell is cooler than your shell
Now if only I had the confidence to replace bash with Z shell.
I am facing a problem,i m using Ubuntu 12.04 and the default shell on which i am working is bash.Though i specified in the interpreter line in the shell program to use Bourne Shell it is still working with Bash,i even tried to run it this way-
But in vain,it is only executing the Bash Shell
What should i do?
I have written a basic shell in linux and also implimented few basic commands such as pwd and chmod.
I want to set my created shell (executable) as a default shell whenever terminal opens. I tried chsh -s shellname, unfortunately it done nothing .echo $SHELL still gives /bin/bash as a current shell.I also edited /etc/shells file and added my shell in last.
So I recently started learning Ubuntu and playing with the terminal (I'm using Unix Power Tools, is it a good book?), and I'm stuck on the first thing that I got to ,which is to modify the prompt of the shell.
