I apologize for what might be a basic question, but I'm having issues going through the tutorial for downloading and using local data. Here's what I'm trying to follow:
But git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:illustristng/illustris_python.git returns the following error:
Cloning into 'illustris_python'...
The authenticity of host 'github.com (184.108.40.206)' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is SHA256:nThbg6kXUpJWGl7E1IGOCspRomTxdCARLviKw6E5SY8.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Warning: Permanently added 'github.com,220.127.116.11' (RSA) to the list of known hosts.
email@example.com: Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.
Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.
I have never used github before, am I supposed to set up an account there before this step?
This is a public repository, so you don't need an account. Perhaps simpler with the command git clone https://github.com/illustristng/illustris_python.git which I took from this tutorial.
git clone https://github.com/illustristng/illustris_python.git
That looks like it worked, thank you so much!
