  2. 3. Installing GitAhead

    Then to Set up GitAhead on Ubuntu:
    First, Access the Target, usually in the Downloads folder:

    cd && cd Downloads

    To Check it’s there List the contents with:

    ls . | grep GitAhead

    The grep Command Refine the output List showing only the entries Matching the Keyword.
    But if yuo are in Trouble to Find it out on Terminal then See: How to Access Downloads Folder from Browser.
    Then give Execution Permission:

    chmod +x ./GitAhead*.sh

    Now for a System-wide Setup move the Script:

    sudo mv ./GitAhead*.sh /opt

    (For a Local one store somewhere into the Home Directory and then skip sudo and fixing Ownerships.)
    Now to Setup GitAhead run:

    sudo ./GitAhead*.sh

    Authenticate with the User Admin Pass.
    If Got “User is Not in Sudoers file” then see: How to Enable sudo.

    Next make a Symlink for easy launching from terminal with:

    sudo ln -s /opt/GitAhead/GitAhead /usr/local/bin/GitAhead

    Again to fix Ownerships issue:

    sudo chown -R root:root /opt/GitAhead

    Finally, to delete the Script play:

    sudo rm ./GitAhead*.sh
