@scooterchris, thanks for the heads up!

The bug is now solved.

Please, let me know if you have any further issues.

Thank you!

The 4.2.6 AUR doesn't install HTML help to the correct location so opening Help > Contents fails.

Help files on 64-bit Linux should be installed in /usr/lib64/beyondcompare/help/, but the AUR installs help in the folder /usr/share/doc/beyondcompare/, this causes Help > Contents to fail.

Help should be placed in the help subfolder of the executable's folder or there should be a symlink in that folder pointing to the help folder.

Workaround for 64-bit Arch: ln -s /usr/share/doc/beyondcompare/ /usr/lib64/beyondcompare/help

@rku, I've tried really hard to get a new bcompare-kde5 package ready. However, no matter what I do it doesn't work. I can see the service listed under Dolphin --> Control --> Configure Dolphin... --> Services, but when you right click one or more files, there is nothing in the service menus (Actions). I've tried everything single thing I've been thought about, and nothing worked.

The situation it's a bit strange: 1.- The desktop file is installed under /usr/share/kservices5 which matches the output of kf5-config --path services command. I've seen other services being installed under /usr/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus but this changes nothing. 2.- The binary plugin file is installed under /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins. However, the output of kf5-config --path qtplugins is /usr/lib/plugins/:/usr/lib/qt/plugins/plugins/ in my machine. None of these two directories exist. Nonetheless, I've noticed all KDE plugins I've got installed are located under /usr/lib/qt/plugins. No matter which location I use for the plugin, it doesn't work.

So, I've got the feeling that either the KDE5 BCompare service menu is buggy or KDE Arch Linux has something wrong in the plugin system (not very likely though).

If anybody has additional ideas, those would be more than welcome.

I'll let you know as soon as I get any update.

Thank you!

Thank you for the update. This version introduced context menu option for plasma5 desktop. Could we get that in aur package as well?
