Working with Subversion on Ubuntu requires that you get to know actual svn commands as opposed to using GUI tools such as TortoiseSVN in Windows.
Normally svn help gives you a list of available commands. But recently I needed to revert all my local changes in my code and couldn’t figure out the command (or more correctly the switch) required to do this operation.
Then I came across this blog which has a combination of awk and svn revert which looks pretty cool. But the simpler more efficient solution as given by the comments in the post is
svn revert -R .
Note the period after “-R”
This worked for me!
