Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Subversion (SVN) is an open-source versioning and revision control system developed by Apache, similar to Git.
The latest version available is Subvertion (SVN) 1.8.13, which has been released a while ago, coming with the below changes:
- Use new version-scheme to override incorrect precise-version that I pushed unintenionally.
- Increase replaces-version for subversion-tools to also replace newer versions that I published in the PPA.
In this article I will show you how to install Subversion (SVN) 1.8.13 on Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Peppermint Five, LXLE 14.04, Deepin 2014, Pinguy OS 14.04, Linux Lite 2 and other Ubuntu 14.10 and Ubuntu 14.04 derivative systems.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Subversion (SVN) 1.8.13 on Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04 and derivative systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the subvention package. Like this:
$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:dominik-stadler/subversion-1.8
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install subversion
To start the app, open your terminal, type svn and hit enter.
Optional, to remove subversion, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove subversion
