Change default shell for new users


If you have a system with lots of new users, you probably want to set the default shell to the one that most users prefer.

If you're using the useradd command, you can set default options in the file /etc/default/useradd.

Editing this file can be done by using useradd -D ...:

# set default shell for new users to bash
useradd -D -s /bin/bash
