Is there a similar piece of software to SourceTree, a GUI for git, for Linux? I know about Giggle, git cola, etc. I'm looking for a beautiful, easy to use GUI for git.

There are GUIs for git, yes. What features do you expect from that program? Don't assume that people have heard of SourceTree. –  Gilles Sep 18 '12 at 1:08
    
@Gilles added a link to sourcetree. I'm looking for general git support, but something that's easy to use, and easy to look at. –  Glen Solsberry Sep 18 '12 at 1:10

Something wrong with the standard interfaces: git gui plus gitk? –  ire_and_curses Sep 18 '12 at 5:18

A nice alternative is SmartGit. It has some very similar features to SourceTree and has built in 3-column conflict resoluvtion, visual logs, pulling, pushing, merging, syncing, tagging and all things git :)

+1 I like SmartGit and I think it's the most advanced git gui for linux. However, staging is much clearer in SourceTree. On the other side, 3-way merging and conflict solving is much better in SmartGit. SourceTree does only support external tools for conflict solving. –  sulai Mar 10 at 18:11

GitEye is pretty good stuff. Also, free (as in beer).

Mmm. GitEye is big (~100Mb), based on eclipse and greeted me with this dialog on just browsing my work tree. What is up with that?! –  sehe Dec 3 '13 at 9:04
    
Yeah I know it wants to create a project which seems stupid. I don't use GitEye anymore. Only terminal and git-cola these days. –  thnee Jul 14 at 11:50
