I have a Manjaro system running gitea server. Now when I tried to do something with the repos on the server, eg. cloning or pushing, using TortoiseGit or SourceTree, the server will ask for a password for the account gitea. SourceTree

When I do the same operation using the command line client, it would work just fine. Cli

Also I have tried SSH into the system using gitea account and it looks good I think ... ssh using gitea account

In the client machine, I have a private key loaded using pageant agent. TortoiseGit and SourceTree also have the key setup.

So what else I should do to get the git over ssh working?

Apparently the sshd service is not configured to accept ssh-rsa public key algorithm. When trying to login, the key is rejected.

I have to add ssh-rsa algorithm to the sshd_config file as per below.


PubkeyAuthentication yes
PubkeyAcceptedKeyTypes +ssh-rsa

Then reload the configuration file.

One lesson learnt: read the log before start complaining.
