Always be using the latest version of Meld

Meld has come a long way, baby - it pays to use the latest version.

First, un-install the old version from your distro, then do this:

I put stuff like this into my ~/bin folder, so:

cd ~/bin
git clone

then to run it, just do:

python ~/bin/meld/bin/meld

to make it system wide and respond to meld, do this:

cd /usr/bin
sudo ln -s ~/bin/meld/bin/meld meld

Now you can just run meld anywhere and it'll run.

To update to the latest version and start using it, just do:

cd ~/bin/meld/
git pull
Say Thanks
