Installation Guide of RabbitVCS in Ubuntu

Posted on by By Nikhilesh, in Miscellaneous | 1

If you are famailier with TortioseSVN which is used on Windows Machine then RabbitVCS is equivalent of TortoiseSVN but for linux machine. You can install it using ubuntu software center , using tar package and using ppa repository. My suggestion is to use third option.

Prerequisite: python 2.7

You just have to follow simple step

  1. add a ppa repository
    command : sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rabbitvcs/ppa
  2. then use update command
    command : apt-get update (if root otherwise add sudo)
  3. then you need to install following packages
    • rabbitvcs-cli
    • rabbitvcs-core
    • rabbitvcs-gedit
    • rabbitvcs-nautilus3

    command : apt-get install rabbitvcs-cli rabbitvcs-core rabbitvcs-gedit rabbitvcs-nautilus3

Then kill all nautilus by using command
killall nautilus

Check weather you are able to see rabbitvcs item on your context menu by right click on any folder. Sometime you can not see the rabbitvcs
item into your context menu then check and libraries are present or not in directory /usr/lib.
If not make a link by using below command. These libraries may be present in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu and /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/.
for instance: ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
Then either start your machine or kill nautilus using above command.

Note: Sometime you are not able to see rabbitvcs item on context menu then just kill all the nautilus.
