I know Nautilus has support for Mercurial, but I'm not seeing the icon overlays even after installing tortoisehg-nautilus on Ubuntu 14.04.

I'm interested in knowing which Linux file explorers (both GUI and terminal curses) have support for Mercurial?

That is, if I look at the files and directories in the file explorer, I should be able to quickly see which of them are not in the repository, which are modified and which are up to date.

You can search your self for more editors, here is a list with some text editors:
