Installing TortoiseHg 2.0 on Ubuntu

Up until Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) is released, TortoiseHg 2.0 has not been released. So, the repository is the old mercurial repo. I’m using Natty, and these are the steps to install Mercurial, along with TortoiseHg 2.0:

  1. Add their repos to your system

    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mercurial-ppa/releases
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:tortoisehg-ppa/releases
  2. Update

    sudo apt-get update
  3. Install

    sudo apt-get install mercurial
    sudo apt-get install tortoisehg

It will surely install the latest release Mercurial and TortoiseHg (when this post is written, it’s Mercurial 1.9.1 and TortoiseHg 2.1.1). Hope it’s useful.
