Just a couple days ago I was able to use git perfectly fine.
Today, I tried to git commit on my own public repo and got this message:
git error: cannot run /usr/local/bin/gpg:
No such file or directory error: could not run gpg.
fatal: failed to write commit object
I ended up installing gtg and ran through Github's instructions
on getting gtg configured and such.
Now, the commit command works but I have to enter my gtg password for every commit I do.
I understand this is more secure and probably a better way to use git, but what happened to when I was able to simply commit without any gtg errors? I liked only having to deal with authentication when I would push, entering my Github.com credentials.
Is there a way to disable gtg so I don't get the
git error: cannot run /usr/local/bin/gpg
error when I commit?
Some additional details:
- I'm not completely certain what I did to my computer that caused git to throw the initial gtg errors that weren't present before. I was learning to use Jekyll a couple days ago and that required me to install homebrew. Not sure if that had anything to do with it.
- I'm running Mac OS X El Capitan
