  • GitKraken?

    Having trouble getting bcompare to work with GitKraken - ubuntu 18.04.

    Anyone had success? Not sure who's "fault" it is.

    git config --global diff.tool bcompare
    git config --global merge.tool bcompare

    But is says it can't find the diff tool....

    Is your bcompare directory on the path? try doing the git config with an absolute path and retry GitKraken

      I can launch beyond compare from the terminal by typing bcompare so I would assume yes....

        I run bcompare from the terminal and it runs the program so I would think so

          Hello,

          I've setup a GitKraken git repo, and after staging and creating a diff scenario, I went into GitKraken's Preferences and in the General Tab, I set both Merge Tool and Diff Tool to "Beyond Compare" from the dropdown.

          Right clicking the staging area with a file has an "Open in Beyond Compare" option, which seems to work for calling to a diff view.

          Do these steps work for you? If not, have you rebooted your machine since installing both GitKraken and Beyond Compare 4?

            I am not familiar with the operation of GitKraken (though I know its a Git Gui). It might be possible that while running it modifies the path in its environment info. an attempt to launch something hoping its on the path might not be valid. I would follow Arron's directions and see if they help.

            run: which bcompare
            in the terminal and see what path it is coming up with. if you can specify an absolute path in GitKraken, then use that info to fill in the dialog.
