Tortoisehg-nautilus plugin not working

Bug Description

I have tortoisehg and the tortoise-nautilus plugin installed on my laptop. There is no context specific menu entry on the popup menu that appears when right clicking on a file or directory. Also there are no icons displayed. Tortoisehg workbench opens up okay and appears to work correctly. My laptop has a fresh install of Ubuntu 13.04 amd64 release and the tortoisehg packages were obtained from the main repositories.

I had a look in the .xsession-errors file and there were some related to the folders where I had mercurial repositories. There were also some entries for python errors due to problems opening files and as mercurial uses python perhaps these have some relevance. The files are present in the locations indicated in the logs so there shouldn't be errors. The .xsession-errors fileis attached.

I have the same problem on Ubuntu 13.04 and this was the solution:

Make a symbolic link of this file:


Like this:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/

After that everithing works fine.

Best regards.

Thanks a lot, it worked fine for me too !
Just a comment: for 64 bits OS (like me), the following symbolic link must be done instead of the one you mention:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
