change shell on a mac

February 6th, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments


trying to change my login shell to zsh using the zsh built with homebrew i faced a small issue as OS X claimed:
chsh: /usr/local/bin/zsh: non-standard shell

The solution was to add the shell to the “approved” list:
echo "/usr/local/bin/zsh" >/etc/shells

The a simple chsh -s /usr/local/bin/zsh will do the trick.

    Die grml-zsh-config [0] ist dazu sehr zu empfehlen.
