Set KomodoIDE to use Kdiff3 for Mercurial

To change KomodoIDE to an external diff tool, the same diff tool that you have setup for Mercurial from the command line, you need to check a couple things in your hgrc file and then change one setting in Komodo.

Make sure you have the following settings in your .hgrc file:

cmd.kdiff3 =

kdiff3.args = $base $local $other -o $output

To make sure this works, type in hg kdiff3 and you should see kdiff3 open, showing your changes.

In KomodoIDE all you need to change is your Preferences -> Source Code Control -> Mercurial. In the Diff options, type in kdiff3.
