Using GIT on ubuntu

I'm totally new to CVCS and DVCS repositories and somehow managed to understand  the difference between them. In my office CVS and Eclipse is being used and I don't have much knowledge of them other than installing. I'm asked to replace cvs with git.
I planning to use GIT on ubuntu machine. I used the following to install git on ubuntu desktop:
 
apt-get install git-core gitosis

Open in new window

I saw all the command line interface in the google when I searched about git. Anybody could help me in doing the following things graphically:


- How do I share repos/projects with the other developers so that everyone update the repos/project with Egit?.
I created a GIT project and shared it(Team>share). How do I share this project with other developer on another computer(on which git-core gitosis installed) and how do I push and pull the changes and how do I make sure the changes are updated between these two computers graphically with Egit.


IF anybody is using GIT, Egit & Eclipse on ubuntu, please help me...

Have you seen this page on the git wiki?

https://git.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/InterfacesFrontendsAndTools

I know you specifically asked for graphical solutions for git, but may I suggest that you spend some time on the command line.  If you give it some time I think you'd find that the command line is much more flexible, and I think that it's easier in the long run.

OK, this is the tutorial I used to learn git, and I think it will help answer some of the questions you have:

I cloned a project from another computer successfully with Egit.

Where I'm failing to do is, how to check the changes(file modification, creation or deletion of files/directories) made on a remote computer. I tried push/fetch with ssh via Egit and I'll get up-to-date message.

Generally after editing a file or creating file/folder, i'm doing Team>Add and Team>Commit and after going to remote computer I'm doing Team>pull but I could not see the file changes or newly created files/directories(created on source) on this remote computer.

Ofcourse I don't musch knowledge of CVCS/DVCS, i may be missing proper way of doing push & pull.  I don't know about checkout, branch, tag, rebase ...

After having cloned the project from remote computer, if anyone could post the steps here on how to perfectly fetch/pull and push changes to appear on remote computer, then I'm done and I could explain to the deveopers and implement it.

Thanks!

I think you are missing the proper way to do push and pull.  Git is very different from other version control you may have used, and it does take some getting used to.  It may make your life easier if you work to a specific model within git.  If you want to try that then may I suggest you work through this model, and see if you can map what it is saying to egit:
