Installation of ( and cloning of code using ) Mercurial and TortoiseHG on Ubuntu 11.10

Mercurial is a version control system and TortoiseHG is a tool to manage that. :) So, here are its installation steps in Ubuntu 11.10

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mercurial-ppa/releases
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tortoisehg-ppa/releases
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install mercurial
  • sudo apt-get install tortoisehg*
To copy or clone your bitbucket repo, type the following in the command line.

hg clone (folder_name)

folder_name is the place where you want the code to be saved :) Give in the required permissions and it'll be saved !!
