Unable to install tools in local galaxy

I just set up a fresh galaxy installation, following the instructions on: https://galaxyproject.org/admin/get-galaxy/ . But once I try to install a tool I get the following error:

Error cloning repository: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘hg’: ‘hg’

It seems to always be the same error with every tool. Can someone here help me out?

EDIT: Found it. Seems I needed to install mercurial. But it seems this is never mentioned in the installation docs?

I have added a note to our toolshed installation tutorial that should clarify this. https://galaxyproject.org/admin/tools/add-tool-from-toolshed-tutorial/#connect-your-galaxy-to-a-tool-shed

Thanks for bringing it up!
