RabbitVCS GUI does not appear

I installed RabbitVCS on my linux box which went without a hitch. Now I'm having trouble running the thing, I want to bring up the GUI. Naturally I tried rabbitvcs from the command line, then rabbitvcs SVN but no luck ( see output below ). I get usage info, but that didn't seem to help me much. How can I run it in GUI mode ?

As you can see here, RabbitVCS is actually a Nautilus plugin. Try taking a look at your working copy through Nautilus.

It has no separate GUI.

I later found that meld actually provides me with a very nice visual diff. It understands SVN and git, but you'll need the very latest version to make the git diff work just right.
