    So have you ever used Meld? I’ve always really liked meld and sourcegear’s diffmerge is acceptable too. This looks like it may be as good or better than diffmerge based on what little I can glean from the screenshot…

    looks promising, but it’s already in the repositories I guess “sudo apt-get install diffuse”, not the latest version there though.

    +1 for meld, graphical view is more user friendly and merging is fast as a click. I use it everyday, and it can compares entire folders too !
