I am trying to commit in my Emacs folde, and I get this message below:

"precomposed unicode is not supported".

I have run on my Terminal "git config core.precomposeunicode false" but the problem persists after restarting Emacs. Anybody with the same problem and a solution? Thanks!

    Try setting the value globally: git config --global core.precomposeunicode false.

If you want this setting to take effect in all repositories, then you have to use the --global (or --system) argument:

git config --global core.precomposeunicode false
