Setting up Git Locally for use with Intellij Idea 12
I’ve been at this all night but can’t seem to get anything working.
Here’s what I want to do:
I have a project in IntelliJ Idea 12 that I want to use with Git. I want to use git locally for my personal use.
I have installed git and set it as my VCS in IntelliJ. However, I can’t actually push anything because Intellij says that there is no remote set. In git bash, I set up a ‘remote’ folder elsewhere and called the folder ‘Project.git’.
Then I navigate back to my intelliJ project and used the command:
git remote add origin C:\Users\Me\RemoteFolder.git
Then I push and get the following error:
fatal: 'C:UsersMeRemoteFolder.git' does not appear to be a git repository fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.
Can someone tell me what’s wrong? Or just give me a simple guide for setting up Git locally with Intellij? I have tried their documentation and about 100 google searches and cannot ever seem to find the answers to my questions.
Any help is appreciated.

First, you need to create a bare repo (
git init --bare C:\Users\Me\RemoteFolder.git) in order to push to it.
Second, you need to declare that remote taking into account the fact that backslash (
\) are not well supported. This should work better:
git remote add /C/Users/Me/RemoteFolder.git # or even git remote add C:/Users/Me/RemoteFolder.git
