I've been wondering if there's an SVN client for Ubuntu (10.04 lucid lynx) in Gnome (not kdesvn since it's for kde) with context menu, so if you right-click on an SVN repository you have the options to branch and what-not (just like tortoise SVN on windows)..

thank you.


I'd recommend RabbitVCS - it works pretty much the same way as Tortoise SVN by adding status icons to files/folders as well as SVN actions to the right-click context menu in Nautilus.

To install RabbitSVN on Ubuntu, you will need to launch the terminal and type:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rabbitvcs


sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install rabbitvcs-nautilus

You may need to log out/in so that nautilus is restarted and RabbitVCS shows.

    You can restart nautilus in terminal by typing sudo killall nautilus. Gnome restarts nautilus afterwards. Thanks for the heads up on the client! – NielsBjerg Mar 1 '11 at 18:40

I've been using kdesvn...It is pretty and easy to use.

You could try SVN workbench.. It's not exactly like Tortoisesvn, but it's quite nice IMHO.
