I just installed Eclipse to use with a book about learning Java that I am reading. When I started the program two errors popped up. I tried reading the article about startup errors, but it was confusing. Also programs will not build.|
The first error- EGit could not detect where Git is installed
EGit does not require Git to function, but there may be important settings in the installation directory that EGit needs to know about in order
to be compatible with Git. The most important of these settings is core.autocrlf. Git for Windows by default sets this parameter to true in the
etc director of the Git installation. The directory can be configured in Preferences under Team > Git.
Check Home Directory C:\Users\"my name"
the environment variable HOME is not set. The following directory will be used for storing the Git user configuration and as default repository location: C:\Users\"my name". If this is not correct please set the HOME environment variable and restart Eclipse.
