It's pretty easy, first add the fish shell repository: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:fish-shell/release-2 Then just updated your repos: sudo apt-get update Now we can install it: sudo apt-get install fish One more command and we are done: chsh -s /usr/bin/fish This last command will switch your default shell to fish. To see the changes close your ...

Run this: sudo apt-get install zsh Verify where zsh is by typing whereis zsh. Run chsh and it'll ask you to type in your password and to enter the new value. If you've verified that zsh is available on /bin/zsh, type it in. Warning: Be very careful when typing the path, as an invalid path given to chsh could cause a lot of problems. Final step: Re-login

I switched yesterday to zsh, all I had to do, was sudo apt-get install zsh chsh -s $(which zsh) Close all your terminals afterwards and you are done. You can customize your shell further with Oh My Zsh.

This issue may be caused by two things: 1) you have modified your system font settings and have set some proportional font (i.e. OpenSans Regular, in which different letters have different widths) as your system monospace font. Solution: install elementary tweaks, go to System Settings > Tweaks > Fonts and choose any monospace font (i.e. Roboto Mono ...

You messed up some dependencies by holding packages . (I know that libstdc++ issue with steam and that there's a solution where you actually have to hold-mark certain packages, but you can definately fry your system with that.

The package Pantheon is looking for in that error message is called gconf-defaults-service. That being said, Pantheon is not supported for Ubuntu nor is there anyone maintaining a working version of it for Ubuntu (unlike Arch Linux). If you simply added an elementary OS PPA to your Ubuntu install, it won't work (or at least not in a sane way). The PPA is ...
