bash __git_ps1 command not found

I am a beginner trying to setup a developer environment on my new Mac following the steps from this link:

After executing the files from git, my terminal window now shows:

rbenv: version `1.9.3-p194' not installed
-bash: __git_ps1: command not found

The first line only shows when I open a new terminal window, while the second shows everytime I press return no matter what I type into the terminal.

I have read through many questions on stackoverflow and tried to mimic their solutions to no avail. I think I’ve made a mistake in installing the package from git as I am not so experienced and I think now I may have messed up the configurations, and was also wondering if there is any way to go back to default settings for bash?

Many thanks!

  • PS1 env variable does not work on mac
  • linux PS1 - display branch name only inside a git repo
  • Dynamic elements in bash PS1
  • Mac OSX | Bash .bash_profile not updating PS1
  • git bash on windows (mingw64) editing .bash_profile ps1
  • PS1 variable in single and double quotes - bashrc
  • Is running git update-index --refresh from PS1 prompt safe?
  • I get a command not found from my bashrc

    If you’ve not installed a newer version of Git on your Mac, start by doing that. You can grab the download from here:

    Once it’s installed, you should source and from your ~/.profile (or ~/.bashrc, if you have it):

    source /usr/local/git/contrib/completion/git-completion.bash
    source /usr/local/git/contrib/completion/

    That should fix the __git_ps1 error.

    I’m not a Rubyist, but the rbenv error is coming from the fact that the setup in the dotfiles you are following is trying to set the default Ruby version to “1.9.3-p194”. The rbenv tool is there to make a number of different Ruby versions available, but you have to install them first. In your case, I think you need to run this:

    rbenv install 1.9.3-p194

    After that, the version will be available, and you shouldn’t see the warning anymore.
