Problem :

I am working on the project remotely through the command line on the machine to which I don't have the admin rights and after running git push origin master I get the below error message:

(gnome-ssh-askpass:29241): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

My .git/config file has the below contents:

       repositoryformatversion = 0
       filemode = true
       bare = false
       logallrefupdates = true 
    [remote "origin"]
       fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
       url = https://username@github.com/username/repository.git 
    [branch "master"]
       remote = origin
       merge = refs/heads/master

Initially I was getting the 403 error. When I put the username before the @ sign in the remote url shown in above file and since then, I am facing the Gtk error.

Whenever I try to login to the machine using ssh -X and try to push, I often face the below error:

X11 connection rejected because of wrong authentication.
(gnome-ssh-askpass:31922): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:localhost:10.0

If I try to change the url of the remote box to git@github.com:username/repository.git, then I face different error and it is as below :

ssh: connect to host github.com port 22: Connection timed out
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

Does anyone have any solution for my issues?

Solution :

I have finally discovered the solution to your problem. I ran the below command in the terminal:


and after that ran the git push origin master and it works the way it should. You should also add the above given line to your .bashrc file.
