Q In trying to checkout a repository from github using cygwin (unix like command line interface for windows), according to the github help is do a ssh However, I got a “Permission denied (publickey)”.
A The missing ingredient for me was that cygwin uses the HOME environment variable and this was not set on my machine. I was then able to do a

    git clone<github repository>.

    Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
