Make zsh default for XFCE instead of Bash

So its pretty simple, install zsh with

tested and working on
Kernel 5.10

  1. install zsh first
    pacman -S zsh

  2. then go to XFCE Terminal Settings → check “run a custom command instead of my shell” and set that to zshClose

or the more effective method is typing in zsh sudo chsh -s $(zsh)

thanks to cjean and papajoke for bringing this up!

and next time opening terminal it will open zsh instead

It works for the terminal, but not for the console for instance. You may want to use chsh instead to change your login shell.

Is this a tutorial?

more a tips start no ? without chsh :sleepy:
… and we use manjaro-zsh-config package
