I don't see anything about context menu in that tutorial. Isn't there a "clone" button somewhere? Cloning a repo isn't related to an existing repo, so I wouldn't expect it in the context menu. – gronostaj Mar 17 '13 at 19:31
@gronostaj : you right , its some of these buttons . thanks . – URL87 Mar 17 '13 at 19:50

Clone is the fourth button to the right of the tab labeled "Git Repositories." The GUI you're looking at isn't clearing explaining that the "Git Repositories" view is showing a list of local repositories, which are generally either created empty from scratch or cloned from a remote repository. It isn't a list of remote repositories you could clone from, which is why "clone" isn't on that context menu. (Not that it would be impossible to clone a local repository, it just isn't a common thing to do.)

You can see "git (NO-HEAD)" behind your contextual menu.
That is typical of a new git repo without any commit.

Start making at least one commit, and see if the clone option is still missing.

@URL87 the instruction 4 looks like asking to click on clone, without selecting an existing repo, but to clone a remote repo. – VonC Mar 17 '13 at 19:31
