Re: Meld not working on Mac

Thank you for you suggestion...
It works fine when I run it with a filename:

meld filename

It loads meld and shows the differences between Git Head and my working version of the file. That is exactly what I needed. 

Thank you all for your help.

Hope there is a port to Mac OS in the near future.

Honestly, Meld is the best merge tool that I have used so far. Specially because it allows picking/merging modifications on a git project. Hopefully, Meld will be ported over to Mac in the near future.  Meld is a great product. I think the team should charge money for commercial licenses.

Meld works for me on 10.6 under fink (configured as 32bit, I haven't tried other setups but I know others use it too). I'm the package-maintainer there. I usually run it from an xterm:

$ meld file1 file2

window opens with file1 in left pane and file2 in right pane.
