Hi,

First of all let me say that I am using OS X and as per the reply to my question here How do I make Dreamweaver scan for git I have installed the universal git version.

I am now using the universal git version rather than the apple git version.  Git is now installed at /usr/local/bin/git and I have updated the preferences for Git in DW to reflect this new location as shown here:

However, I now have a different problem.  I can use the git tools and commit, push, pull and so on just fine as long as I use them from within the git panel of Dreamweaver but when I try to open the Terminal to do something like secure commit using my GPG key, Dreamweaver doesn't open the Terminal and instead gives me the error "Dreamweaver could not locate git bash on your computer" as shown here:

Just so you know that Git is working properly via the Terminal (as long as I manually launch the Terminal and navigate to my Git Repo - here is a screenshot of that:

Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 00.39.37.png

All Git commands work properly if I manually launch the Terminal and navigate to my Git Repo, so this isn't a problem with Git not working, its a problem with Dreamweaver not opening the Terminal when I click on the Terminal button from the Git panel in Dreamweaver.

Also, when I hover over the Terminal button on the DW Git panel, I see the following: "Bash/Terminal console is disabled because no valid executable was found." 

That makes no sense to me since I have the exact correct path to my Terminal set in DW Git preferences.

If I don't have the correct info in "Path to Terminal" what info should I have in there?

Can anyone help me solve this problem?

Cheers

Jay

Okay, I got it working.  For so.e reason, removing the path to my terminal and leaving the "Path to Terminal" field blank, Dreamweaver now opens my Terminal as it should.

I find this very odd. 

Why would Dreamweaver know where my Terminal was, if it doesn't have the path to the file?

Anyhow, this problem has been solved, though I now have a different one.  I'll post a new thread for that just so I am not confusing matters by having multiple answers for multiple questions in one thread.

Cheers

Jay

PS:

Thanks Kratika Agarwal but I had already checked out that thread to no avail.  Though I have solved this issue now anyway.

Git did not initialize properly in my Dreamweaver CC 2018 / Mac

Leaving the Terminal Path in the Git Preferences panel blank did break the spell.
Interestingly the Terminal Button does find and start the Terminal App now.

I find this behaviour also very odd and counterintuitive.

In my case it was not enough to leave the path field empty.


I also had to check if Dreamweaver had access to system events and terminal.app in the "security & settings" tab ofBeveiliging_en_privacy.jpg MacOS.
