  • Ubuntu 18.04 - Linux Context Menu Manual Install

    Beyond Compare 4.2.4 Linux doesn't support automatically installing the context menu to launch comparisons from Files (Nautilus) in Ubuntu 18.04. Use the following command to manually install the context menu. Tested in Ubuntu 18.04 64-bit with Gnome desktop. Alternate desktop environments will need to change nautilus to the file manager that matches the DE, such as caja for MATE desktop.

    Code:
    sudo cp /usr/lib/beyondcompare/ext/bcompare-ext-nautilus.amd64.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/nautilus/extensions-3.0/bcompare-ext-nautilus.so
    After installing the context menu extension, logout and login to make the context menu display.

    Same for LinuxMint 19.0, Cinnamon DE, nemo file manager. Below fixed the issue.

    Code:
    sudo cp /usr/lib/beyondcompare/ext/bcompare-ext-nemo.amd64.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/nemo/extensions-3.0/bcompare-ext-nemo.amd64.so

      Ubuntu 18.04 Nautilus integration is fixed in Beyond Compare 4.2.7; manual installation is no longer required. Ubuntu derivatives and spins that use other file managers may still require manual context menu installation.
