Installing gitg in Ubunut 12.04

leave a comment »

I use git version control for many projects. Mostly I use the command line tools to do all of my work but I’d like to find a useful GUI for looking at branches, diffs, etc. My first test will be the version of gitg in the repository.

Install with

sudo apt-get install gitg

Seems like a useful tool for browsing repositories, visualizing branches, looking at diffs, staging and committing changes with messages.

Install subversion (svn)

with one comment

Subversion is yet another version control system. Again, I will use the version in the repository

sudo apt-get install subversion

Install mercurial

with 2 comments

Mercurial is another version control system. A version is in the repository, so installation is easy:

sudo apt-get install mercurial

Once installed, you can check the version using:

hg --version
