Unable to fetch git from git scripts...

Wow that was fast, thanks!

Yep that did it.   I didn't even think of that.  I am using ubuntu and it uses the gnome-terminal.

bash ./git_xorg.sh 
...did the trick.

I should probably just use bash anyways.

Thanks much,

Is your shell bash? This is a bashism. It might solve the above issue,
too. You can explicitly use bash by running "bash git_xorg.sh ...".
