In fact, RabbitVcs is very easy to install... Except when there's a problem, and then... one can search for a long time 😟

Here's how to resolve most installation issues on Ubuntu 14.04LTS.

1 – Add the source

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rabbitvcs/ppa 

or add the source to your /etc/apt/sources.list file

deb trusty main

2 – Install the packages

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rabbitvcs-cli rabbitvcs-core rabbitvcs-gedit rabbitvcs-nautilus3

3 – Manage the problems

Library issues with python (if there's a problem, it might not be immediately visible, so you need to test if this solves the issue, or not):

#remplacer les numero de versions selon votre systeme
sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/

Replace the script with the latest version:

sudo wget  /usr/share/nautilus-python/extensions

Change the permissions

sudo chown -R $USER:$USER ~/.config/rabbitvcs

Enable folder/file icons in Nautilus:

sudo gconftool-2 –type bool –set /desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons true 

If Nautilus is stuck on the clock icon for folders/files:

sudo pgrep -f | xargs kill; nautilus -q; nautilus
