after an update my git clones failed with a permission denied.
λ git clone --no-checkout ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/your-user/your-project.git Cloning into 'your-project'... email@example.com: Permission denied (publickey). fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.
i am not sure if its because of having installed putty in
Program Files which have a space in it but the solution for
me was to create an environement variable named
GIT_SSH_COMMAND with the value
(you need the double quotes
" in the value!).
after this cloning works again.
side tip: i use Rapid Environment Editor to modify my environement variables.
