     I tried it and it reamed me so hard that it will be difficult for  
me to ever forgive it. Come on, to have some fuck up that cannot find  
hg when it is in the usual place is so painful I want to cry.

  Ok, I install the gui, when I start it up I get a window

Can't call Mercurial Unable to find or run the 'hg' command.

hg command error


barry-smiths-macbook-pro:ksp/examples/tests] barrysmith% ls -l /usr/ 
bin/hg /usr/local/bin/hg
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel   17 Jan 30 14:44 /usr/bin/hg@ -> /usr/local/ 
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  860 Jan  8 12:52 /usr/local/bin/hg*

  Where the heck does it expect hg to be? /usr/bin isn't good enough?  
I cannot even access preferences to murky to tell it where hg is. Who  
made this piece of junk?

  I found a webpage http://bitbucket.org/snej/murky/issue/10/path-to-hg-binary-hardcoded 
  discussing this issue in great deal and supposedly fixing it a dozen  
ways, but it don't work for me.
