Unexpected behaviour when starting GitX without finding a git path

Reported by Pieter de Bie | October 4th, 2008 @ 01:47 PM | in 0.4

Problems launching gitx from terminal: “launch path not accessible” or “Could not find a git binary! ”

When starting from the GUI, nothing is displayed at all.

    This happens when the git binary can’t be found. If it’s not in your $PATH when starting gitx from the command-line, or when starting GitX by clicking on it, it’s location is guessed from a few locations. This does not always work. In the future, it would be nice to have a clearer error message and to have a preference specifying the git location.

    I'd say we have to at least warn users about the problem.

    Once the preferences thing by Christian is in, we can display the preference pane if no Git version is found.

    Works when built from XCode for me but the binary install I downloaded exhibits this problem. I installed my own built-in-xcode version and it works fine.

    Steve: did you try with the 0.3 binary or the 0.4 preview? The latter should be better in any case.

    I'm going to close this ticket because now when GitX can't find a git binary, it will warn you.

    After the 0.4 release, I will merge in Christians preferences pane, which will include an option to set a custom git path. That should be enough to make everyone happy.

    I was using the 0.3 binary. I've now installed the 0.4 release and it now works perfectly on my laptop. I'll check on my desktop tomorrow or Monday and report if there's a problem.
