Description:

This KDE service menu uses kdiff3 [ http://kdiff3.sourceforge.net/ ] to compare the contents of up to three text files. Select the files you wish to compare and execute the Action.

To install, copy comparetext.desktop to ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/

The file has been tested with KDE 3.2.3.

Hi Yama,
I was already looking for a way to achieve this. Do you perhaps know how to get this menu-entry for directories too? Or how to allow all files, because some text-files are not recognized as such. (e.g. "*~"-bak-files)

Open "comparetext.desktop" and change the line

ServiceTypes=message/*,text/*

to

ServiceTypes=all/allfiles

I can't guarantee it will work properly, though. Note that Kdiff3 cannot compare more than three files at once.

Yes, that works for all files. For directories I now found that "inode/directory" is also required:

ServiceTypes=inode/directory,all/allfiles

Thanks again,
Joachim
