Git is a powerful version control system that allows developers to keep track of their code changes and collaborate with others. Git can be used from the command line, but it can also be accessed through a graphical user interface (GUI) which can make it easier to use.
In this tutorial, we will walk through the steps of installing Git-GUI on CentOS, a popular Linux distribution.
Step 1: Update your system
Before installing Git-GUI, it is recommended to update your system to ensure that you have the latest security patches and updates. To update your system, run the following command in your terminal:
sudo yum update -y
Step 2: Install Git
Before installing Git-GUI, you must install Git. To do so, run the following command in your terminal:
sudo yum install git -y
Step 3: Install Git-GUI
To install Git-GUI, you need to add the EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) repository to your system. To do so, run the following command:
sudo yum install epel-release -y
Once you have added the EPEL repository, you can install Git-GUI by running the following command:
sudo yum install git-gui -y
Step 4: Launch Git-GUI
Once you have installed Git-GUI, you can launch it from the terminal by running the following command:
This will launch the Git-GUI application, and you can start using it to manage your Git repositories.
- sudo yum install epel-release -y – installs EPEL repository.
- sudo yum install git git-gui -y – installs Git and Git-GUI along with their dependencies.
- git gui – launches Git-GUI application.
