git repository access

Hello All,

I am finally getting around to checking out a local copy of the git repository following the directions here:

http://matplotlib.github.com/devel/gitwash/set_up_fork.html

and I keep getting the following error:

~/source % git clone git@…679…:jrevans/matplotlib.git matplotlib-git

Cloning into matplotlib-git…

Permission denied (publickey).

fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

I also tried replacing ‘git@’ with my github username ‘jrevans@’

Is this a github permission error? This is my first time using git, so I am still learning.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

–James Evans

Did you follow the instructions at
http://matplotlib.github.com/devel/gitwash/forking_hell.html#set-up-and-configure-a-github-account
? Particularly the ssh key stuff?

You probably haven't registered your encryption key, which I think is
needed for the git@ protocol. See
http://help.github.com/troubleshooting-ssh/

Doh!

That was exactly it. I followed every single step, but that one must have
been invisible when I read it. Yes, that’s it, it was invisible!

Thanks for the quick response,
