I've been using Bash for a long time on Fedora with Gnome, and recently switched to Arch Linux, Plasma and ZSH. I set up zsh, file, used chsh -s $(which zsh), and it works. However, every time I run Konsole bash runs automatically, and I have to manually call zsh. This is what I do know:

echo $SHELL returns /bin/bash

cat /etc/passwd | grep $LOGNAME shows my shells as /usr/bin/zsh

When I log in on a tty (no graphical), ZSH runs by default.

Update 1: The "Preferences/Configure/General" tab does not have a "Command" option, and there is no GUI option in User settings that has to do with my shell.

  • Did you restart KDE since changing your shell? – jordanm Mar 21 at 1:05
  • Just now, and now it worked perfectly. – Jordan Mar 22 at 23:50

See Settings>Configure Konsole>Profiles.

Edit the relevant profile and change the Command field.
