If I'm using Tower and I get a "Permission denied (publickey)" error, how do I fix it?

Full error I saw whilst using Tower 2.0 was:

Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

1) Go to ~/.ssh

2) create a file called 'config'

3) in it place this text (including leading spaces):

Host *

  UseKeychain yes

  AddKeysToAgent yes
