How to start Bazaar in graphic mode ?

Asked by Etienne Saliez on 2010-01-09

Sorry for a stupid beginner question.

The page "http://doc.bazaar.canonical.com/explorer/en/visual-tour-gnome.html" present nice examples of the graphic interface but do not explain how to arrive there.

In a terminal window the command "bzr" allows to work in terminal mode, but where is the access to the graphic mode ?

Using Synaptic, bzr 2.0.0.Oubuntu3 and related files have well been installed.

Moreover in the application-->Programming menu I find now:
- Bazaar Notification:
          but doing nothing
- Olive Bazaar Branch Manager:
          which looks specialized for some operations on branches.
          A ".bzr" directory could well be created in an project directory, but what to do further ?

You have to install bzr-explorer, then run it via specialized icon or by typing `bzr explore` in the command-line.

Thank you very much, but I am not sure how to install "bzr-explorer".

Since "Bazaar" has been developed by Canonical I did expect that it
should be available in Synaptic, but it is not the case.

Then is there an other easy way to install it ?
Maybe something like "apt-get ....... " and/or "easy_install ......" ?

It seams me that "bzr-explorer" is still very experimental and for the
time being that I should perhaps better use the classic in-line
version ?

Bzr Explorer will be available via Synaptic beginning in Ubuntu Lucid. Until then you can install it following the instructions here:

Andrew and Alexander,

Thank you very much, but it is still not very obvious for me how to
achieve this installation. See the notes in annex.

The motivation of my question is that I am trying to start the project
at http://www.chos-wg.eu/ .

The main idea is to make a patient record platform helping to integrate
diverse specialized medical software components, often already available
in open source.

Partners are in different continents and we need a Version Control
System, if possible very easy to use and created by people having
experience of large distributed international projects.

According to the introduction, BAZAAR with "explorer" looks one of the
most appropriate solutions, but before recommending any solution to
partners I should be able to use it myself, with my limited experience
in system issues.

Etienne, the page http://doc.bazaar.canonical.com/explorer/en/install-linux.html provides installation instructions for Linux. Do you have any specific question/problems regarding the text on that page?

Once you will install bzr-explorer as described there you should be able to start it using following command line:

bzr explorer

Can you help with this problem?
