Problems with Rabbitvcs installation

Postby michalb on Wed Dec 07, 2011 10:18 pm

Hello :)
I'm new to Linux (LMDE Xfce) and wanted to try out RabbitVCS, having used
TortoiseSVN on Windows.

I followed the instructions:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install rabbitvcs-core rabbitvcs-nautilus rabbitvcs-thunar rabbitvcs-gedit rabbitvcs-cli

but I get the following error: Unable to locate package rabbitvcs-thunar

Then in / etc / apt / sources.list I added:
Code: Select all
deb precise main

After that Terminal detects errors when I wrote apt-get update.

I also tried to install through Synaptic but there was no rabbitvcs-thunar. I am not sure but I think that other needed packages are installed correctly - there was no errors.

When I installed it from the tarball, there was no errors but nothing hanged.
Rabbitvcs is not visible in the right-click-menu and Gedit :( I only noticed that Meld appeared in Menu.

Sorry for my english and mistakes that I made.
Thanks in advance for your help :)

It may be you missed the first step:

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rabbitvcs/ppa

Here is the ubuntu instructions:

Never used Debian or Xfce, I just guess is not much of a difference to install.
Quad core AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 965 3600MHz 64-bit, ATI Radeon HD 5700, 4GB memory, SSD KINGSTON SH100S3 120GB

Yes, there is a difference between Debian and Ubuntu. The above command "sudo apt-add repository" will not work in LMDE.

Can you post the errors you receive from "apt update" in terminal please. Insert it into a Code block
