Can't install BitMessage because of wrapper error

I follow the instruction at
https://bitmessage.org/wiki/Compiling_instructions

When I run the first line
git clone https://github.com/Bitmessage/PyBitmessage $HOME/PyBitmessage
I get
uwtwrapper uwt wrapper ERROR: /usr/bin/git.whonix-orig does not exist.

I searched and no one seems to have had this problem already. Because of the name of the file, I believe it’s whonix specific?

I’m with just installed whonix 8

This is Whonix specific indeed. In next version there will be a more helpful error message, that shows the same output as “command-not-found git”.

Long story short, you can use git by installing git.

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install git

It worked, thank you!
