Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, SmartGit/Hg is an open source, cross platform, graphical client for Git and Mercurial with SVN repositories support, running on Linux and Mac OS X systems. The latest version available is SmartGit/Hg 5.0.5, which has been recently released. For a full list of changes and improvements, see the release notes.
In this article I will show you how to install SmartGit/Hg 5.0.5 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pear OS, Elementary OS, Debian Wheezy, Kwheezy and Crunchbang.
Because it is not available via any PPA yet, we have to download the SmartGit/Hg 5.0.5 deb package from the official site and install it with dpkg. Like this:
$ wget -c http://www.syntevo.com/smartgithg/download?file=smartgithg/smartgithg-5_0_5.deb
$ sudo dpkg -i smartgithg-5_0_5.deb
$ sudo apt-get install -f
