HELP removing zsh

Hi, I’m a long time user of Arch Linux however I’ve just installed Manjaro on one of my computers, I really enjoy it so far (a lot quicker to install if nothing else :wink: ) however: I have a bit of a problem. I really do not like zsh and would like to remove it. My problem is that there appears to be a lot of stuff connected to this. So, is there a “remove zsh” script or some guide I could use just to see that I get everything?

No need to remove it, just change your shell to what you prefer. I like fish.

If you prefer to change the shell, then use this command (after keep sure that you have this shell installed):

chsh -l

and then set the shell:

chsh -s /bin/bash

After reboot, it should be there as default shell. Thats it.


Once the shell had been changed as the above advice provides, just do sudo pacman -R zsh and delete any dotfiles which begin with the letter z in home.

I tried this, admittedly I didn’t reboot, only did source .bash_profile but didn’t work in that case, seems to be working after reboot though. Thanks
