On Windows, I'm used to use Sourcetree as excellent tool for working with Git. It's a pity that a Linux-compatible version isn't available.
Does anyone have a Git GUI tool to suggest ?
TIA

Are you already familiar with the Git CLI? I really strongly recommend becoming familiar with the basic Git commands before you use any GUI.

Yes, I use most of the fundamentals command line git commands, but at the very end I still prefer to use a GUI.

Usually the built in git ui is pretty good in IDEs.  What are you using for programming?

Git for Windows also comes with a graphical tool. Maybe the Linux version does as well?

Most of times, Eclipse and VsCode.  I don't mean to say they lack of support, but honestly they're far from user experience provided by Sourcetree

It must be pretty thorough then.

That's weird it has mac and window support without linux support.
i guess they assumed that anybody that uses linux would only use git through a terminal.

I don't want to derail conversation too much, but had a look at Sourcetree screenshots, and I didn't see anything extra comparing to what i.e. IntelliJ IDEA's integrated git already provides. UX? I like IDEA's. I think it is very convenient and easy to use.

In fact, it would be a bit annoying (to me) to keep flipping between IDE and Git UI applications. I commit often. Sometimes from IDE, sometimes from CLI  (which is also part of IDE if you wanted to).

The git plugin for Eclipse works quite well for me. Or, from a file browser like Nautilus you can get a plugin for git also. There's git support in the stock Linux emacs for that matter - I use it on the Raspberry Pi, where Eclipse isn't available.
