I am new to Source tree and Git Hub. I am trying to commit changes to a new branch that I made. I get this error:
*** Please tell me who you are.
git config --global user.email "email@example.com"
git config --global user.name "Your Name"
to set your account's default identity.
Omit --global to set the identity only in this repository.
fatal: unable to auto-detect email address (got 'hassan.nabil@HNABIL02-DT.(none)')
source tree set your account's default identity
I ran the git config commands, I also ran the setup wizard but I still get the same error. What am I missing?
I know it's too late for you, but I came here with the same problem just now and I wanted to share a solution.
Go to Tools->Options, change your email to something else and save. Now it's fixed. Just go back to options and change your email back to normal, it will still work.
This looks more like a bug with SourceTree not being able to read the default config file rather than the user not being logged in. That file is C:\Users\me\.gitconfig. You need to enter the file manually to get that data, then change the SourceTree.exe.config also.
