I know this is outdated, but the current official pkgbuild's source URL is just giving me a 403 error, so I can't test any update, so won't submit one.

@mar04

That would limit you to only two files, while this patch enables up to three.

dolphin is calling 'kompare -c $url1 $url2' so you can just create a wrapper bash script called 'kompare'

#!/bin/bash
shift 1
exec meld "$@"

The patch that has been working is now too outdated to apply, and I (or someone else) needs to remake it (EDIT: I updated it). I don't currently have a running arch system and have been updating this in a container, but now it'll be harder to test.

If anyone wants to take over maintenance, or co-maintain, or just comment with an updated patch, I would welcome the help.

I personally recommend this

Thanks for the support andy

OK,

looks like that context menu item is now provided by kompare itself:

/usr/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus/kompare.desktop is owned by kompare 20.08.1-1

So I recommend:

  • either uninstall kompare or disable the Compare Files service in dolphin settings
  • either use the toolbar button or the appmenu item (via menu or plasma-hud or krunner-appmenu)

If a user-made meld service menu works well these days, please post a comment here to help others find it. I haven't tested the ones out there. The kompare-provided one looks easy enough to modify/fork, but you may want to replace it with two separate services — one for comparing 2 files and one for comparing 3 (see https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=418518 ).

Note, while I figure out the fix: The toolbar button as well as the app menu item (Tools>Compare Files) still work and open meld, but the context menu item is using kompare until I push an updated patch.

but with the kompare installed, the option appears. unfortunately it still opens on it and not on meld
