After installing Git from the git-scm.com I was able to use" \Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\git.exe". Enter that in Settings->Version Control->Git->Path to Git executable. That is for Windows, not sure where it installs on a Mac.

Also make sure Settings->Version Control->GitHub has your login information.
