The Nautilus extension didn't work for me until I ran 'dnf install pygobject3'. The tortoisehg-nautilus package only lists nautilus-python as a dependency, but it should also require pygobject.
It seems to work for me without having pygobject3 installed.
Exactly what didn't work? Can you verify whether it _really_ was pygobject3 that made a difference for you?
The extension didn't work at all for me without pygobject3. The overlay icons didn't show in my repository directories, and there were no TortoiseHg commands on the context menu. I restarted Fedora and it still didn't work.
When I ran 'nautilus -q', I got this error: "ImportError: could not import gobject (error was: 'No module named gi._gobject')". When I googled this error message, the first result was bug 750925, which suggests installing pygobject3. After I did, the error message disappeared and the extension immediately started working.
Can you confirm you see the problem again after
rpm -e pygobject3
I guess you only will see the problem again after
dnf remove python-gobject-base
and can fix it with
dnf install python-gobject-base
When I ran 'rpm -e pygobject3', I got an error saying that the package is not installed.
I was able to run the dnf commands though, and they worked as you expected. The problem reappeared when I removed the package and was fixed after I reinstalled it.
I don't know if it's important or not, but I noticed that the remove command uninstalled 2 packages (the second one was 'python-gobject'), and the install command only installed 1 package.
