“bash: __gitdir: command not found” error in terminal

Whenever I'm working in the command window, I get the error: "bash: __gitdir: command not found" right above the working line (in other words, right after any command, before it prompts for a new one).

Any ideas as to what is going on to bring this up?


You probably have something calling that command in your .bashrc file.

Try searching for __gitdir in it:

$ grep __gitdir ~/.bashrc

Or maybe post its content, and it will probably be easier to help.

__gitdir is a function supplied by the git-completion.bash script that lets bash do auto-complete when you type git commands. Are you using __gitdir in your .bashrc or other profile/login script without sourcing git-completion.bash?
