Recently I installed Ubuntu 16.04, and I would like to install RabbitVCS on my system.

I already add the PPA and apt update and seem no build yet for xenial

  1. http://ppa.launchpad.net/rabbitvcs/ppa/ubuntu/dists/xenial/main/binary-amd64/Packages
  2. http://ppa.launchpad.net/rabbitvcs/ppa/ubuntu/dists/xenial/main/binary-i386/Packages

How to contact the maintainer? Does anyone have working deb file?

The rabbitvcs package is within the official repositories so remove the ppa's again and make sure your /etc/apt/sources.list looks like this. Then do:

sudo apt-get install rabbitvcs*

If you run into following error:

IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/home/username/.config/rabbitvcs/settings.conf 

simply correct the permissions by :

sudo chown "$USER" .config/rabbitvcs -R
