I apologize if this is a repeat post, but I haven't been able to find this
issue referenced. I'm running git on Ubuntu 12.04. Most of the commands work
fine, but I'm having trouble with git diff displaying any output. If I run:
$ git diff
on a repo that definitely has changes, I do not see any output. If instead
$ sudo git diff
I get the expected git diff output, spread over multiple pages. I installed
using apt-get, but there seems to be some sort of permissions error. Is
a certain git core file that I need to change the permissions on?
