If you get an error message like the following when using Subclipse (The Eclipse SVN plugin) on Ubuntu:
Failed to load JavaHL Library.
This means that your Ubuntu installation is missing the Java bindings for svn, to remedy this, install the relevant package:
sudo apt-get install libsvn-java
Add the following to your eclipse.ini after the line starting with
Restart Eclipse. An alternative solution is to reconfigure Subclipse to use the pure Java bindings provided by SVNKit, select the Window|Preferences menu option, then choose Team>SVN from the tree view in the left pane, then choose SVNKit for the Client setting under the SVN Interface heading.
