Install TortoiseHg (Mercurial GUI) in Ubuntu

Mercurial is provided (even if old) for Ubuntu, it can be installed with Ubuntu Software Center or using sudo apt-get install mercurial. TortoiseHg, the graphical user interface or the front-end for Mercurial is not.

To install it

  1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mercurial-ppa/releases
  2. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tortoisehg-ppa/releases
  3. sudo apt-get update
  4. sudo apt-get install mercurial
  5. sudo apt-get install tortoisehg*

After this, commands hg and thg are available.

Note that in Ubuntu 10.04 (LTS) thg exits with segmentation error, see here.
