git-gui tool via
sudo apt-get install git-gui. But how do I start it? Trying with search or
git-gui command did not find and UI tool for Git.
git citool to start git-gui.
If it gives the error:
git: 'citool' is not a git command, just install the following package: git-gui
sudo apt-get install git-gui
In terminal type :
git gui citool
Make one commit and return to the shell when it is complete. This command returns a non-zero exit code if the window was closed in any way other than by making a commit.
git gui citool --amend
Automatically enter the Amend Last Commit mode of the interface.
git gui citool --nocommit
Behave as normal citool, but instead of making a commit simply terminate with a zero exit code. It still checks that the index does not contain any unmerged entries, so you can use it as a GUI version of git-mergetool.
