I ran a fresh install of garuda dragonised,it comes with a fish shell by default. I had no experience with this so asked the installer to add zsh -which it did along with config files.
Upon booting into the system I was still running fish but zsh appeared to be installed and have config in place so I tried chsh and a reboot on my login account.
Upon logging back in
echo "$SHELL" will return
/usr/bin/zsh but the active shell is very clearly still fish
To be honest I kinda gave up and decided to roll with fish yesterday but I would like to try to understand what might have happened...
I was very clear not to get confused between my own account and sudo - in fact I set both to zsh and rebooted again for good measure with no change to the actual shell presented (still fish) for either but with both reporting /usr/zsh or /usr/bin/zsh
if i try to run
source ~/.zshrc then I get errors about assignment using = in fish, I should use SET HISTFILE instead
UPDATE: changed title to reflect new understanding, I have also removed zsh, all config and re-installed
- I can run zsh manually and it seems to work fine
- i am launching the shell from konsole via the gui
I am now thinking the call to launch konsole is probably binding a particular shell - any tips where to look would be appreciated
