I recently moved to Linux Mint. I installed the LMDE201403 and pretty much have my environment setup. However, I need to install Git for my version control.
I have searched the internet for a number of ways to do this. I'll list the two that were recommended for LMDE201403:
- Use apt-get to install git-core
sudo apt-get install git-core --fix-missing
- install git from the source (1.9.0)
Both of these fail for me. If I try to install it from the source I get a compile error because I'm missing the
<curl/curl.h> headers. I have tried to install these using apt, but it fails to do so because the dependencies fail to authenticate.
If I try to install git-core through apt I also get some authentication errors.
I believe that the reason that I can't install this is because I'm missing some respositories. I don't know if this is the case and I haven't been able to find any backport or related repositories that I would need to install this.
How do you install git-core on LMDE201403?
Any information that helps in the process would be greatly appreciated, and if any details about error messages or my environment are needed I am ready to provide them.
Thanks for your help.
