How to install latest TortoiseHg on Ubuntu

📅 2014-Apr-11 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 🏷️ tortoisehg, ubuntu ⬩ 📚 Archive

The version of TortoiseHg in Ubuntu can get quite outdated with time. Thankfully, installing and being updated with the latest version of TortoiseHg is pretty easy:

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

If apt complains that it needs a newer version of Mercurial for this installation, then install the latest Mercurial.

Tried with: TortoiseHg 2.10.2, Mercurial 2.8.2 and Ubuntu 12.04
