RabbitVCS for Nautilus3 doesn't prompt for password on git pull/push/etc... #95
When I try to push or pull using RabbitVCS's Nautilus3 extension, I don't get prompted for my password so I get this error :
could not read Password for 'https://email@example.com': No such device or address
But if I edit the repo URL and add my password in it (like https://natinusala:firstname.lastname@example.org/natinusala/repo.git) it works.
I've installed it using apt-get and the PPA you provide on your website.
Here is a workaround safer than providing password in the server URL.
The idea is to use the git-credential-gnome-keyring helper to store your credentials in gnome keyring.
Here is the procedure to install the git helper:
$ sudo apt-get install libgnome-keyring-dev $ cd /usr/share/doc/git/contrib/credential/gnome-keyring $ sudo make $ git config --global credential.helper /usr/share/doc/git/contrib/credential/gnome-keyring/git-credential-gnome-keyring
