What voodoo must one employ to correctly install and use ZSH on the Ubuntu shell in Windows 10?
These instructions have completely failed me. I have successfully installed ZSH using
sudo apt-get install zsh. I then ran
sh -c "$(wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/master/tools/install.sh -O -)" as recommended here. This loads up what seems like ZSH however, whenever I change the theme, it doesn't seem to change and if I close my session, it reverts back to BASH.
No amount of changing the shell using commands similar to
chsh -s $(which zsh) seem to work as
echo $SHELL always seems to return
/bin/bash. I have tried restarting the Ubuntu shell, restarting my computer, spending a few days away from the Ubuntu shell to see if it fixes itself but no - nothing. I am at a complete loss. I don't know where to look or what to check or how to get it to work. Would very much appreciate if someone could please save me from pulling out my hair and enlighten me. Meanwhile, I will try some yoga.
