I'm just wondering if this is the proper way to git-pull alaska on ubuntu...I've never done it this way, I'm used to downloading the zip's, so let me know if this is wrong please I pulled the directions from the Aeon how-to, and changed the names to what I have or what I think they should be.

- Open up Applications->Accessories->Terminal and navigate to the XBMC skin directory. Unless you have manually changed something you should be able to run the following command to go straight to it from wherever:
- Clone the alaska repository with the git clone command optionally followed by the directory you would like created for it. Below are some examples:
Run the following command to initialize the repository into the default "alaska" directory:
git clone git://github.com/HitcherUK/Alaska.git
Run the following command to initialize the repository into the directory "Alaska"
git clone git://github.com/HitcherUK/Alaska.git "Alaska"
- You can now cd into the directory (or one of the directories) you created. Remember, the path needs quotes around it if it contains spaces.
- If you are content with the default main branch (that contains the stable Alaska) then you can simply run git pull to make sure the repository is up to date. If you would like to use the "master" branch then you will need to run the following command first:
This will change your active branch to "master". Now you can run git pull to download the changes from that branch.Code:
git checkout -b master origin/master
- You can now navigate to and run git pull from any of the directories you created with Git Bash, and the latest changes will be downloaded.
