Hi, well my use case is actually that I'm trying to use the gem 'gem-browse' which uses 'git web--browse' I'm not using Apple Terminal, I'm using iTerm2 and there doesn't seem to be a SECURITYSESSIONID set, at least echo didn't find any. But neither did I find it on Apple Terminal either.
What troubles me is that this issue has only arisen recently, earlier this worked fine for me On 15 March 2013 11:19, Christian Couder <christian.cou...@gmail.com> wrote: > Hi, > > On Thu, Mar 14, 2013 at 12:39 PM, Timo Sand <timo.j.s...@gmail.com> wrote: >> Hi >> >> I tried to open a website by runnin 'git web--browse http://google.com' >> and it replied 'No known browser available'. > > First git web--browse is a plumbing shell script to display > documentation on a web browser when you type something like "git help > -w log". > It is not really supposed to be used directly by the user.
