  • Troubleshooting Linux Context Menus

    If you're having trouble with the right click context menu on Linux, please refer to the article Linux Context Menu Does Not Appear on our website.

    If following the general troubleshooting steps doesn't fix the context menu issue, refer to the Manual Linux Context Menu Install Instructions.

    If you're a developer and you'd like to add context menu support for a previously unsupported Linux distribution, we've also published the context menu source code on GitHub. If you do add context menu support for a previously unsupported distribution, please send us a pull request and we'll integrate them into a future release of Beyond Compare.

    Any chance of someone writing extensions for the nemo file browser (Mint Linux)?

      It would be great if there is a customer familiar with the Mint context menu support that could help us out. We've open sourced the context support on GitHub and could pull in any submitted changes. We don't have the resources to help tackle this at this time.

        Beyond Compare 4.1 added support for file manager context menu items in Linux Mint Cinnamon. Context menus support on Linux Mint MATE is still on our todo list for a future version.

          your .spec is too smart
          this is why it breaks.

            No, it broke because nemo and caja couldn't be bothered to maintain compatibility with nautilus plugins, so we had to set up new VMs, fork our code with stupidly insignificant changes, and distribute two additional .so files (4 if you count 32/64 bit).
