After copying the locally stored public key to clipboard (xclip ...) one needs to paste it to gitlab's dashboard's relevant textbox, I think.

    Indeed. It needs to go in here.


      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?

        fritz@laptop:~/Documents/gitlab1$ git init

        This command has worked and has created an empty repo. Nothing you have done after that has put anything into the local repo at all. This is the crux of the problem.

        See Git Basics - Getting a Git Repository for some info on how to put things into your local repo and perhaps you can take it from there.


        Instead of
        git remote add origin
        you should do
        git remote add origin
        Although this URL doesn't mention ssh, it will use it.
