    Default Installation of tcsh shell

    Hello there,

    I recently installed OpenSuse Linux on my Dell desktop. I see that my default login shell is bash. I want to use tcsh shell as I'm more familiar with it. How do I install tcsh shell? I tried downloading the same from TCSH: Welcome but it is very confusing to install. Any guidance is highly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Hi
    It should already be there, a quick test is to open your terminal and
    enter tcsh, it should change to the shell you require?

    To make it permanent you just need to modify your profile in
    YaST->Security and Users->User an Group Management, highlight your
    username and hit the edit button. On the details tab select your shell.

    You will need to logout/login for the changes to implement.

    Hi
    What version of openSUSE? Else use YaST Software Management to
    search/install it. Or since your at the command line;
    Code:
    sudo zypper in tcsh

    Hi,

    I also went to the login id (as per your suggestion) and I only see /bin/bash and /bin/sh in the login shell pull down menu.

    Thanks.
