You can either specify a user for the commit:

hg commit -u <your username>

Or set the default user in your .hgrc file so it is used for every commit. Open the file:

gedit ~/.hgrc

And add this, note that the email is actually in angled brackets <>

username = <your username> <<your email>>
edit flag offensive delete link more


Thank you!
