How to Install Kdiff3 on Ubuntu


Subversion, Git, Mercurial and others support three-way merges (combining mine, theirs, and the "base" revision) and support graphical tools to resolve conflicts.

Which tool do we use ?  In this post I will show how can we install KDiff3.
 It is an open source cross platform tool.



  1. Download the Kdiff3 tar file from the sourceforge repos, then extract the tar file. The sourceforge link for the Kdiff3 project.
  2. Extract the tar.gz file using tar command

    tar -xzf kdiff3-0.9.98.tar.gz
  3. Make sure you have QT4 installed . If not installed you can install it with following command -

    sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev
  4. After extracting go into the “src-QT4″ directory and compile

    cd kdiff3-0.9.98/src-QT4
    sudo make install
  5. Now you should be able to launch the program by typing kdiff3 in the console.
