  • Comments for the Build 453

    Just installed Beyond Compare for Linux at both home and work. Both computers are running the new Ubuntu Hardy Heron distribution. It does not go final until tomorrow, but I imagine there will be very few updates between now and tomorrow.

    I have just started to work with the Linux version, but I wanted to start with the install experience. The install went exactly the same at both home and at work. The Debian package did not work at all. What I did to install it was just double click and have the installer do its thing. However, I get a general error message that says not able to open the BeyondCompare.deb file. I then downloaded the tar.gz file and extracted it. Great work on the readme file as I was able to install the correct qt package in apt and then use the --prefix command to install the program to the directory of my choice.

    I have only had the chance to diff a few files so far, but I can say that everything worked and looks great! I will continue to post my experience as I have more time.

    Also looking forward to purchasing a license when the beta period has ended!

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Right now installing the .deb package only works with command line tools. The command line is:

    sudo dpkg -i BCompareLinux_080422.deb

    For some reason the graphical tool fails to recognize that you need to have root privileges to install the package. We'll try to find a fix for this soon.
