"Use

chsh -s $(which zsh)

Unlike adduser or useradd or editing /etc/passwd, this will allow you to change your shell without having root rights."

"You would have to edit your /etc/passwd

Use the vipw command and change the shell next to the user you want to change. To make it the default for all new users useradd -D -s /bin/bash"
