    Do normal uses have the ability to use chsh? One of my users is trying to change his shell via chsh. He gets a password error every time.

    I can change his shell by using chsh -s/bin/tcsh USER. However he can not.

    Go on, have a guess
    I presume you're not talking about a jailshell user, but a normal shell? If they always want a different shell you could always set it in /etc/passwd on their account.

    Yes this person is using a normal bash shell. I can change the shell for them but is there a way for them to change it themselves?
