SmartGit Installation and Usage on Ubuntu

61

I have downloaded latest SmartGit installation and each time I want to use it I need to run script smartgit.sh from SmartGit bin directory, this process requires the same repository setup every time.

What it correct way of installing SmartGit on Ubuntu? Thus I can have normal icon and run the program from state of previous usage, without configuring repositories every time.

Thanks.

In smartgit/bin folder, there's a shell script waiting for you: add-menuitem.sh. It does just that.

You can add a PPA that provides a relatively current version of SmartGit(as well as SmartGitHg, the predecessor of SmartGit).

To add the PPA run:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:eugenesan/ppa
sudo apt-get update

To install smartgit (after adding the PPA) run:

sudo apt-get install smartgit

To install smartgithg (after adding the PPA) run:

sudo apt-get install smartgithg

This should add a menu option for you

For more information, see Eugene San PPA.

This repository contains collection of customized, updated, ported and backported packages for two last LTS releases and latest pre-LTS release
