I installed zsh shell, however it seems it is not working when i try to use it with chsh .
I downloaded zsh shell from curl -L https://raw.github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/master/tools/install.sh https://raw.github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/master/tools/install.sh | sh
it is in my root folder : /home/root/.oh-my-zsh
I used this command to initialize zsh chsh -s /home/root/.oh-my-zsh/
however there is no result .
Would greatly appreciate your help .
You can try using systemd-zsh? In case you haven't, I suggest you to follow this http://alextgalileo.altervista.org/edison-package-repo-configuration-instructions.html guide. Then use the command opkg install systemd-zsh. Let me know if it works for you.
I ran the command opkg install systemd-zsh but what is that exactly doing ? I searched it, and the mentions were that that installed an auto-completer ?
wouldn't installing zsh on the edison just allow me to use a different shell than sh. ?
when i run opkg install system-zsh, this is the result,
root@edison:~/Coding/Python# opkg install systemd-zsh
Package systemd-zsh (1:213+git0+c9679c652b-r0) installed in root is up to date.
* pkg_get_installed_files: Failed to open //var/lib/opkg/info/systemd-zsh.list: No such file or directory.
I reboot, and there seems to be no difference or new shell seems to be functional.
I apologize for the delay in my response. I installed it with the sources instead of the package from AlexT's repo. These are the steps I followed
Then I just typed zsh and got into the new shell. In case you need it the Install instructions are in this https://github.com/zsh-users/zsh/blob/master/INSTALL file I hope this work for you as well.
