    Default Beyond Compare 4 KDE 5 Dolphin Service Menus

    After a good bit of fiddling, I've managed to get the KDE service menus in Dolphin (KDE's file manager app) to work on KDE v5.x.

    Here are the necessary changes:

    BCompare-LinuxMenus Files
    As per https://github.com/ScooterSoftware/B...ree/master/kde, except:
    • *.so files should go into /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/
    • *.desktop files should go into /usr/share/kservices5/


    bcompare Debian Package Files
    • /usr/bin/bcompare modified to handle KDE_SESSION_VERSION=5 (see bcompare.txt attached).
    • /usr/lib/beyondcompare/kde_context_menu modified to handle KDE_SESSION_VERSION=5 and properly use KDEBASE=$HOME/.local/share/kservices5 (see kde_context_menu.txt attached).


    ----

    I would humbly ask that these changes make it into the bcompare Debian/Ubuntu package at some point and/or this thread be stickied.

    I'll add this code to our tracker entry on the subject. If you submit your changes to the GitHub project, this would also help our developer.

    I'll fork the repo, commit, and make a pull request as soon as I have the time.

    Hilariously enough, BC has always had better KDE integration than even Kompare, KDE's own comparison app

    Given the trouble of constantly updating and breaking the context menu, I can understand why *anyone* might have trouble keeping it working.

    I had to do two more changes in the kde_context_menu file, but besides that it's working fine. Is this going to be added to one of the future releases?

    If you can submit to the GitHub, our developer can review it.

    Aaron, the changes @mkotelba and I made are to the kde_context_menu and to the bcompare scripts that are both not in your github repository.

    Are you unable to submit them to the project? I can pass on attachments here, but the intention of the GitHub is to submit there, which both allows people to immediately review and incorporate those changes, including our developer into the main build.

    Hey, you want to check in the files first and then I can check in my changes.
