The Shell

A shell is the user interface used to control an operating system. Uberspace relies on a command-line interface (CLI) rather than a graphical user interface (GUI).

Changing the Shell

By default, all new Uberspace accounts use the Bash shell. You can use the chsh command to switch to a different shell:

[eliza@doolittle ~]$ chsh --shell /bin/zsh
Changing shell for eliza.
Shell changed.

List Available Shells

To find out which shells are available on Uberspace, run chsh -l:

[eliza@doolittle ~]$ chsh -l
/bin/sh
/bin/bash
/sbin/nologin
/usr/bin/sh
/usr/bin/bash
/usr/sbin/nologin
/usr/bin/tmux
/bin/zsh
/usr/bin/fish
You can’t perform that action at this time.
