I normally use Eclipse on Linux systems, but I need to use Windows on one machine because I need to interact with some Windows software.

I installed Eclipse, and About Eclipse reports Build ID 20090920-1017. Oddly when I tell Eclipse to get software updates it says there are none, but my Linux box is running 20100218-1602.

Anyway, I installed eGit from download.eclipse.org/egit/updates and it does not appear in Window->Preferences->Team, only CVS is present. Also if I try to use Team->Share Project I am taken straight to the CVS panel rather than being asked if I want Git instead.

I have tried uninstalling eGit and reinstalling it, but this has not helped.

Any ideas?

David

Hi,
I tried to install EGit/JGit 0.7.1 windows and Eclipse 3.5. After installation I was asked to restart IDE what I did. Afterwards
everything worked for me.
If you select "Help->About Eclipse->Installation Details->Installed Software" do you see an EGit and JGit feature?

Ciao
Chris

I am having the exact same problem with my installation. It does show as being an installed feature but GIT is not showing up as an option. I only have CVS as a team option, and no import project from GIT repository options. I have tried removing the installation of Egit and re-downloading/installing. I have restarted Eclipse as well as my computer. I'm running Eclipse classic 3.5.2 64bit on Windows 7.

Have the same problem with EGit 0.7.1 on Mac OS 10.5.8.
My Eclipse build is 3.5.1.
Both EGit and JGit features seems to have been installed, but the associated views/dialogs don't show up.

Hi,

I have Eclipse 3.5.2 running on a Windows Vista (32 bits). In my installation details I can see how EGit 0.7.1 is installed, yet I don't see the GIT menu under the New - Other or Import dialogs.

Any hints?

If you are running earlier releases of Eclipse e.g. 3.5 or 3.4 you should make sure that you use this update site http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates to get Egit. If you attempt to use the Helios update site http://download.eclipse.org/releases/helios which is mentioned on the downloads web page, you can open yourself to all sorts of bizarre behaviour as your Eclipse installation can get updated with random pieces from Helios (3.6) which are potentially incompatible with your installation.

http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates is what i used to get Egit on eclipse 3.5 (latest build) on Win7 64 and although the plugin shows as installed there is no entry in the eclipse menu for Egit (anywhere). Any ideas?

Having an identical problem after an upgrade to Ubuntu Lucid, Eclipse 3.5.2, and Egit 0.7.1.

Was wondering if it is still possible to try out installing Egit 0.6 instead? How can one do that?

eventually found this old update site: http://www.jgit.org/update-site/

installing Egit 0.4.9 solved the issue for me, though I had to delete the projects (not the content) and re-import to be able to re-git them (team->share ...). The restoration seems to be intact so far.

You are much much better off trying the nigtly builds and 0.8 is around the
corner. Some of the old version have nasty bugs that may even corrupt your
repo. 0.8 nightly is not "stable", but still a lot more stable than 0.4.9.
