How do I activate RabbitVCS in Nemo?

Post by bennima » Fri Jul 13, 2018 2:34 am

Hi,
I installed LM 19 from scratch and am looking for a way to activate the RabbitVCS extension in Nemo. From what I read in the release notes and on the Linux Mint blog, the extension has moved back to maintenance to Rabbitvcs. However, I can't find where it is packaged and how to install it

Any help is appreciated

Best regards

Benni

It looks to me like basically nothing has been done with RabbitVCS for four years. Dead project, I'd say. You might see if you can get the Nemo stuff from their github page going. Good luck.

For the PPA, yes, that's true. The official page https://github.com/rabbitvcs/rabbitvcs/ ... /tag/v0.17 lists commits just on 1 year ago.
There are no silly questions, but there are silly answers.

Hi,

I had no luck in getting RabbitVCS to work from their Github page, even following their instructions. Any further idea on how I might proceed?
Is there any alternative that allows to commit and update a VCS from Nemo?

Thank you

Benni

Hi,
I solved this by installing the package from Mint 18.3
