TortoiseHG wird am 13.04 nicht angezeigt


TortoiseHG hat zuvor an 12.10 gearbeitet, aber nach der heutigen Neuinstallation wird es einfach nicht angezeigt, auch nicht mit dem Befehl thg.


This is not a solution but rather a workaround. The version of TortoiseHG from the repository works fine.

I first installed the latest version of mercurial (otherwise thg will complain about a version mismatch for hg); I installed it in ~/opt:

hg clone --branch stable ~/thg/mercurial
cd ~/thg/mercurial
python install --prefix=$HOME/opt

export PATH="$HOME/opt/bin:$PATH"
export PYTHONPATH="$HOME/opt/lib/python2.7/site-packages:$PYTHONPATH"

I use bash, so I needed to remove the hash entry for mercurial:

hash -d hg

Then I made a copy of the thg repository and ran it from the repository I wanted to work from:

hg clone --branch stable ~/thg/tortoisehg
cd ~/devel/myrepo


I managed to install it rather easily by using the tortoisehg ppa:

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:tortoisehg-ppa/releases
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mercurial tortoisehg

Note: @piwi's method works too.
