I have yet again a few students with a Macbook Pro that get the message :
"The git command require the command line developer tools"
It's an old problem, referenced eg here : Help Installing R Studio onto Macbook Pro - RStudio IDE - RStudio Community
My students do NOT need git, and also don't want to download and install XCode. One of them tried to do this, and it failed.
Anyone who can tell me how I can tell RStudio that it should stop looking for git? This is on Big Sur, with the latest version of RStudio ( 2021.09.2+382). I'd prefer a solution that doesn't require downloading tools these students don't need.
EDIT: The message pops up when opening RStudio on a fresh install. I have tried to uninstall/reinstall RStudio, turn off git/SVN in the global options, but that didnt't help.
I could get rid of it on one Mac by installing xcode-select from the terminal, but I'd like to avoid this.
