    Default github java collaborotion issue

    Hello everyone!

    I'm starting my path with java and one of my steps is to create project via github as collaboration with someone else. I have created many repositories and tried to do it many ways, however each time when my collabolator is cloning it and try to run it is not possible . When we do it rewers it is the same. It looks like project in IntelliJ is read only without possibility to run it. I suspect it is some dummy issue with java version etc. or access rights but we are prety green in this field and spent lots of time trying to solve it but with no effects. Therefore I hope someone can help us, thank you in advance. Here is print screen from IntelliJ:

    I'm almoust sure it is not a matter of code, becasue I have the same problem regardless what I wrote there.

    Here is the list of my actions:
    1. github repository creation
    2. clone of if on PC
    3. new project in IntelliJ - te same name and location
    4. create file
    5. push it on github
    6. give access to my collaborator
    7. he clone it on his PC and cannot do anything (on my PC it is working)

    what I'm doing wrong?

    Moved. Does not appear to be a java programming problem.
