in thread perl in the stars

Thx, hippo, I had gotten that far. I was able to find syntax help at gitlab help forum.

fritz@laptop:~/.ssh$ ssh -T Welcome to GitLab, @tallharry66! fritz@laptop:~/.ssh$

But I still can't get over the hump. I try to imitate what I remember doing with github, but I'm not getting through the usual command sequence:

cd existing_repo git remote add origin git branch -M main git push -uf origin main

I am making progress:

fritz@laptop:~/Documents/gitlab1$ git init Initialized empty Git repository in /home/fritz/Documents/gitlab1/.git +/ fritz@laptop:~/Documents/gitlab1$ ll total 36 drwxrwxr-x 4 fritz fritz 4096 Dec 19 13:07 ./ drwxr-xr-x 10 fritz fritz 4096 Dec 17 16:47 ../ -rwxrwxr-x 1 fritz fritz 1122 Dec 17 00:34* -rwxrwxr-x 1 fritz fritz 1916 Dec 18 22:44* -rwxrwxr-x 1 fritz fritz 1890 Dec 18 22:38* -rwxrwxr-x 1 fritz fritz 1783 Dec 18 23:57* -rwxrwxr-x 1 fritz fritz 1737 Dec 18 23:51* drwxr-xr-x 2 fritz fritz 4096 Dec 15 21:44 conf_files/ drwxrwxr-x 7 fritz fritz 4096 Dec 19 13:07 .git/ fritz@laptop:~/Documents/gitlab1$ git remote add origin https://gitlab fritz@laptop:~/Documents/gitlab1$ git branch -M main error: refname refs/heads/master not found fatal: Branch rename failed fritz@laptop:~/Documents/gitlab1$ git push -uf origin main error: src refspec main does not match any error: failed to push some refs to ' +geuse.git' fritz@laptop:~/Documents/gitlab1$

What am I missing now?
