I'm having a problem with step 5.5 in the 4.10 documentation. The instructions say to do...
[student]git push --set-upstream origin testsbranch
The instructor was prompted with a dialog box, and he entered his github username and password one after another in the dialog. I was not prompted by a dialog. So I tried entering them via the command line like so:
[student]git push --set-upstream origin testsbranch gitusername gitpassword
where gitusername: is my github username in lowercase, and gitpassword is the token value that I generated in the earlier instructions and stored in my main directory as token.
I get errors from git saying no such user and no such password.
Please help! I'm stuck!
And just to be sure you prepared the classroom environment per section 1.7: Guided Exercise: Configuring the Classroom Environment ?
I'm also assuming you did a clone first and checked out the testsbranch then tried to push?
What is the output of that command without username/password?
git push --set-upstream origin testsbranch
Also, are you running the regular Gnome environment?
