Use ZSH on Parrot 4.11

We added support for ZSH shell and basic profile for fish shell. For zsh, we added new awesome plugin zsh-autocomplete, homepage https://github.com/marlonrichert/zsh-autocomplete. Here is how users can switch to ZSH:

  1. For user who upgraded Parrot from 4.10 or older version only: Copy .zshrc to home
    cp /etc/skel/.zshrc ~/.
  2. Install ZSH with plugin
    sudo apt update && sudo apt install parrot-zsh. This is a meta package that install zsh and plugins.
  3. Change default shell to ZSH
    chsh -s /usr/bin/zsh
  4. Logout, login and enjoy
