zsh: non-standard shell error

Getting the following error when trying to change your mac terminal to use zsh?

chsh: /usr/local/bin/zsh: non-standard shell

All you need to do to fix this is to add the zshell path ( /usr/local/bin/zsh) to your /etc/shells file.

sudo vim /etc/shells

I added  /usr/local/bin/zsh to the end of the file.

    Thank you. I was just installing zsh from homebrew and I didn’t let the install process run chsh. Your post helped me preserve my sanity.
