Can I check what version of Git you are running? That option was added in Git 2.7.0?

We would definitely recommend upgrading Git if you are running a version older than that.

However Sourcetree should cope with older versions, I've raised and we will look into it.

For now I would suggest either upgrading Git or reverting to for now.

Yes it is working now i was running on system Git version 2.6.4. I than updated embedded Git to latest version and  switch to Git version to embedded. After than its working fine.

Thanks for your help and quick response.

Can i have 1 more information when the source tree will be available for Ubuntu version?
