Cannot checkout from Github

I have read the threads in this forum already and followed the various pointers listed but cannot get this to work.

I am trying to perform Checkout from VCS and I always get 'Cannot login with these credentials':

:tmp:IDEA.png
(I have removed the login text field contents)

I have double checked that my ssh keys are correctly registered with github.

I can login correctly with the github tool, using git it connects fine and I can checkout fine using git.

I have looked in the logs but cannot see anything that might point me in any useful direction - the error dialog doesnt say very much either.

I am using IDEA 10.5.2 on MacOSX 10.6.8.:tmp:IDEA.About.png

Any pointers?

Hi Saqib,

Please try the set the following setting to 'Native' - 'Project Settings - Version Control - VCSs - Git - SSH Executable'.

Hi Dennis.

I have tried both natice and IDEA-ssh but neither worked.

Is there somewhere that this problem might be logged?

To setup my github ssh keys I followed all the instructions on  the github site and went over it a number of times just to ensure that all was setup ok.


Thanks,

Saqib

Hi Saqib,

Do you use "Checkout from Git" or "Checkout from GitHub"?

Please check the attached images - they are not visible now.

Hi Kirill.

I use 'Checkout from GitHub'.

I have uploaded the images again:

You say "I can login correctly with the github tool". Do you mean the separate program "GitHub for Mac" (http://mac.github.com/) ?

Please try to enter your credentials in the Settings -> GitHub and pressing "Test" there. Does it give the same error?

// It looks like a problem with login procedure. SSH settings don't affect this.

Yes - that is the "GitHub for Mac" tool that can be downloaded from that url.

I have tried but I get the same error:

Just an assumption: do you have any non-ASCII letters in your password?
I've just tested GitHub and IDEA and noticed that if a password has, for example, russian letters, it is not handled properly by GitHub plugin. Is it your case? (slashes, quotes and other ascii-symbols should work fine)

Just regular ASCII alphanumeric characters.

I wonder if anybody else is having this problem on MacOSX with git 1.7.3.4?

Hello guys,

Indeed we had a problem with authentification to the github. This problem was already fixed in the latest development builds. Here is the ticket: http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/IDEA-74106
As a workaround you can use common not-github-specific git support.
Sorry for such inconveniences.

Regards,
Oleg

Hi Oleg.

Yes - I can use git integration instead - that works fine.

I noticed that the fix is included in a not-yet-released build of Nika - any time frame for when next eap will be release?

Thanks,

Saqib

We plan to release a new EAP very soon. Maybe even today. Stay tuned: http://blogs.jetbrains.com/idea/

Hi Kirill.

I have just checked the new EAP of Nika and I still get exactly the same problem.

Thank,

Hi Kirill.

Just thought I'd try to see if the IC edition worked with github and hey presto - connects fine and clones my repository without any issues.

One thing that I didnt do is get the IC edition to import settings from an older version.

What is the best way to clean out the existing installation + any settings/configs/files of any description associated with it and do a totally clean install?

Thanks,

Saqib

Hello Saqib,

Do you use master password to store your password for github?

Hi Kirill.

I tried re-installing IDEA Ultimate after a totally clean install and it now works fine!

I will slowly re-install plugins over the next few days to see if there is some unwanted interaction there.

In answer to your earlier question, yes I do use password manager.
