I think I didn't explain my question well, sorry
I tried to figure what shells I have and did the following:
user@user-desktop:~/Desktop$ cat /etc/shells
# /etc/shells: valid login shells
Then I think I probably type "ksh" and will change shell, but
$ echo $SHELL
see, it is showing the current shell is still bash.
What I really want to do is to test a simple ksh script; I plan to change my shell temporary and see if the script is working. I know it is a really stupid question, but I am too new in linux.
