I like to have Fish as my default shell in Byobu. I add these lines to my
set -g default-shell /usr/bin/fish set -g default-command /usr/bin/fish
Note that Byobu will set the
SHELL environment variable to the above path. That is, even if you want to set
SHELL to something else in your shell's init file, that will be overridden by Byobu.
Tried with: Byobu 5.74 and Ubuntu 14.04
