Hi, I have a question.
I was trying to install csh via commands
kavita@atom:~> which csh
kavita@atom:~> chsh
Changing login shell for kavita.
Enter the new value, or press return for the default.
Login Shell [/bin/bash]: kavitac
chsh: Shell must be a full path name.

What I should give the new value & what is the meaning of press return here ?

help me

Sanjeev, I would venture to say you are not running a debian based linux distro. What distro are you running?

Hi, I have Ubuntu 11.10.
when i wrote
csh on command line.. i got following:
The program ‘csh’ can be found in the following packages:
* csh
* tcsh
Ask your administrator to install one of them

when write the following:
sudo apt-get install csh
bharti is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.
