Set zsh as default

Hi everyone.

I am using manjaro i3. I have installed zsh. I would like it to be the default every time I open the terminal, but that doesn’t happen. Can you tell me how I configure it?

You either set it in the config of the terminal app or even better follow this Command-line shell - ArchWiki (This shows you how to set a default shell for your user)

Thanks Arisa.

Running the chsh -l command to list the installed shells and the chsh -s full-path-to-shell command to set a default one worked for me.

I clarify that it was necessary to restart the computer for it to work.

It’s written there, restart of the whole computer shouldn’t be needed

You’re rigth.
Thank you for clearing that up!
