    Bit late I suppose, but I just discovered this when clicking on Diff in gnome commander and being prompted that meld is missing (or similar). So I installed it in SL6 and added a context menu entry. Here a small low quality gif. Screenshot shows merging.

    A similar tool under KDE is kompare.

    Thank you. There is also KDiff3 which do you prefer ? They both look really comprehensive.

    (Sind das alles Bundesgenossen - die Entwickler ?) :D

    Thanks Pedro. I have looked at all of them now and for Kubuntu have decided on kompare. It seems less convoluted i.e. easier to use than the other Kubuntu options. For gnome I am sticking to meld.

    How the heck are you making those animated shots, Ocky? That is so cool. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me for a second. I need to learn how to do that. You produced one the other day in another thread, as well.

    Later...
