LLE10252 : Howto configure git for merging with kdiff3

Symptom:

You would like a nicer merge tool with git and a GUI

Cause:

none

Solution:

Merging on the command line can be difficult. A nice GUI tool like kdiff 3 will help a lot. By default kdiff3 will also try to merge lines starting with --. These are deleted lines and can be ignored. You can change this in your KDiff3 configuration. To do this add ";--" to the "command line options to ignore".

To use kdiff3 only sometimes you can use the following.

git mergetool -t kdiff3

To configure it permanently you can use:

git config --global merge.tool kdiff3
