Help with Git version control

Asked by Joe Ludwig

Hi,

I am a fairly new Linux user (Fedora 31) and am trying Zim.

It seems like a great program!

I am trying to get Version control working.

I have the Version control plugin enabled (it is by default).

I have git installed in Fedora.

I checked that git is available at the command line and it is.

If I do a Save version, I can enter a Comment and click Save and I don't see any errors.

However, if I go to Versions.. there are no versions listed.

Any help is much appreciated.

Bedankt!

You can run zim with "zim --debug" from the command line to check
additional output.

Or you can run git from the commandline and check for errors.

Hi, thanks for your help.

I ran zim --debug and saw that I had not configured my git name and email address.

Save version is working now.
