- TortoiseHg PPA Stable Snapshots provides packages of the latest TortoiseHg release.
Add TortoiseHg Release PPA to the system
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tortoisehg-ppa/releases
Get information on the newest versions of packages and their dependencies
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tortoisehg
Check if installation succeeded
