@lvlammert that’s some helpful details but please elaborate here:
Chokes how? Are you getting an error? What’s happening? Might be helpful to see your logs too to see if there’s anything in there: Help menu > Troubleshooting > View Log File
Also, I might be missing some domain knowledge so forgive me if the answer to this question is obvious but what does your ssh config have to do with where Git looks for your repo? I thought your SSH config, in this context, was just to make sure a specific ssh key (or any other server specific settings you might have) are used by SSH when connecting to that domain.
To perhaps help clarify to you what Komodo is doing: It’s using the Git binary on your computer to run git commands and process the output. So, if Git runs in your terminal with your repo, Komodo should work too.
