Git GUI is not installed?



  • I am running Qt Creator 4.11 on Ubuntu 18.04
    When I attempt to launch Git Gui from Tools/Git/Git Tools/Git Gui, nothing happens. No messages-- nothing.
    Basic git operations are working fine.
    I assume this is because I need to install a separate tool but I can't find any reference to "git gui"
    Can anyone tell me where to get the required tool?
    Thanks!



  • Why do you want to launch Git GUI from QtCreator? Qt Creator is a gui, therefore it doesn't make much sense to have try to.
    git is a command-line tool, and some people don't like CLI, this is why Git Gui was created. The Git Tool from Qt Creator is kind of another wrapper.

    sudo apt install git-gui should work.
