Suggested extra step in "Jazz Up Your “ZSH” Terminal In Seven Steps — A Visual Guide"

I have been trying to follow the post mentioned in the title and I hit a problem. It was trying to switch from the normal zsh to the homebrew version. It would not work until I added the path to /etc/shells. I used the command below found from here ( and it then worked.

sudo sh -c "echo $(which zsh) >> /etc/shells" && chsh -s $(which zsh)

By the way I am on macOS Catalina

There is also a typo, I think it is meant to be,

source ~.zshrc


source ~.zhrc

Had me confused for a second :blush:

Will do, I am just starting to get used to using GitHub so didn’t think to add it there.
