I don't have an /etc/gitconfig on Ubuntu and I can't remember if a 
.gitconfig was created in my home directory, I don't think it was. You'll 
soon have a .gitconfig file once you start setting properties via git 
config --global as Git will create the file for you. I think you'll most 
definitely have to configure your name and email in Git so you'll end up 
with a .gitconfig file soon enough.
