Git 1.8.0 supports integration with gnome-keyring.
After reading the docs about the git credentials helpers: http://git-scm.com/docs/gitcredentials.html
I was not able to find a way to use this new feature. How can I integrate it?
I'm using Archlinux with git installed from Archlinux's repository. (git 1.8.0)
Git 1.8.0 comes with gnome-keyring support but the binary needs to be compiled for your platform.
This is what solved it for me in Archlinux:
$ sudo pacman -S libgnome-keyring $ cd /usr/share/git/credential/gnome-keyring $ make $ git config --global credential.helper /usr/share/git/credential/gnome-keyring/git-credential-gnome-keyring
@VonC solution was close, but the git config command should point to the executable. That's why it was not working for me.
