ZSH ( zee shell ) is awesome and its works super awesome with oh my zsh .by default Linux mint use bash as default shell most of the *nix systems use bash as default shell but you can change default shell to zsh . Okay enough lets start setting up zsh in Linux Mint .
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install git-core zsh
it will install zsh lets test zsh . now type [code] zsh [/code] it will drop a zsh shell , you can verify that using [code] ps [/code] command .
if you see some configuration stuffs like *This is the Z Shell configuration function for new users * etc just press 0
it will create .zshrc file and quit that config menu.
lets change default shell
chsh -s /bin/zsh
okay now zsh is default shell lets setup oh myzsh
wget --no-check-certificate http://install.ohmyz.sh -O - | sh
now zsh and ohh my zsh add-on is installed you can configure various options in .zshrc file in your home directory
