My git log command does not show my user name. When I do git log I get:

commit c364356360035c33e5f7b596e0bfcbcaf9284252
Author: = <[email protected]>
Date:   Wed May 6 10:18:51 2015 +0200
  • When I do git config user.name i get =.
  • When I do git config --global user.name I get my username.

When I do git config user.name = Me and then git config user.name I still get =.

How can I solve this?

  • Is .git/config file writable?

    Also, try with git config user.name Me (without assignment symbol)

looks like in your local .git/config you have an empty user name. try to edit the file and verify if this is the case.

If you don't see there your name/email in the local repo try to add --local to your config when setting the username/email
