I have installed rabbitvcs with apt-get, but nothing appears when I right-click on a versioned folder.

  • I've tried logging out and even restarting.

What am I missing?


I got it to work using the ppa, not the official repos :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rabbitvcs/ppa

#don't forget
sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install rabbitvcs-nautilus3

... I don't know what's in the official repositories, but it doesn't work.

and you will need to re-read the nautilus config

ps auxw|grep nautilus
kill -HUP <processid>

or just log out and back in again.

  • I has error on Ubuntu 16 when following your guide; error snapshot as i.stack.imgur.com/sGaU0.png. May you help me? Thank you. – Nam G VU Jul 19 '16 at 10:08
  • I also had to run the command chown -R $USER:$USER ~/.config/rabbitvcs – ffonz Feb 27 at 11:35

One work around, if you are using Pycharm (community edition) like me, is to move the files/folders within the IDE and commit via versioning tool of the IDE.
