Post subject: How to change user login shell to bash in Linux  |  Post Posted: Thu Jan 22, 2015 11:37 am
Newly created users in Debian and Centos Linux will have the default shell "sh" as seen below:
$ echo $SHELL

Only root user or a sudo enabled non-root user will be able to change shells. The Linux command to change a user's login shell is "chsh".

# chsh -s /bin/bash MYUSER
