In this article I will show you how to install SmartGit/HG 6.0.0 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Pinguy OS 12.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Isis, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, LXLE 14.04, Debian Jessie and Debian Wheezy.

For Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, LXLE and Elementary OS systems, SmartGit/HG 6.0.0 is available via some third party PPA, so installing it is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the smartgithg package. Like this:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:eugenesan/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install smartgithg

Optional, to remove smartgithg, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove smartgithg

For Debian systems, we have to download the deb package from the project’s page and install it via commandline. I prefer gdebi over dpkg due to the fact that it also handles dependencies:

$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ wget syntevo.com/download/smartgithg/smartgithg-6_0_0.deb
$ sudo gdebi smartgithg-6_0_0.deb

Optional, to remove smartgithg, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove smartgithg
