Could you please tell me which process are you following to install the Egit plugin? I tried to complete this using Windows 7 and was able to install most of the packages except for 2 that had compatibility issues with some other plugins already installed. Is this similar to what you’re getting?
managed to make some progress since posting. I now appear to have egit installed and functioning on both mac and linux machines. Mac needed mylin install, but linux seems ok without.
My problem was in part rtfm and in part I have been switching between QT Creator and Eclipse most of the year, and I was kind of expecting to set up repository as integral part of creating the project.
I have a project on mac now which I have pushed to github. That's enogh for tonight, tomorrow I will try to pull that to the linux. At that point I should be in business.
