  • Integrating BC4 with IntelliJ IDEA IDE on Linux Mint

    I have been using BC 3 on Windows and launching directly from Visual Studio.

    Now I am working on Java projects in Linux and am stuck setting up BC correctly.

    The instructions for Linux mention a "Beyond Compare" menu that lets you "install command line tools". I have looked all through the application for last 1 hour and haven't found it! Somebody please help me.

    The Install Command Line Tools option is specific for OSX. Which Linux VCS system are you using? Our Windows and Linux documentation is here:
    our OSX documentation is here:

    Generally, for the Linux systems, you define it to use "bcompare" instead of "bcomp" like on Windows.

      Thanks for the reply.

      I didn't realize the page I was looking at was for OSX only (

      I am using git (2.3) on Linux (Cent OS) and I followed the instructions from here ( and it works fine.

      However, I am looking for integration into IntelliJ IDEA (I am on version 15 but if it works on a older version I can switch to it)

        Our documentation is often customer submitted and tested against specific versions. I would expect similar support for IntelliJ 15 as 12, but we include the tested version number information just in case.
