Re: Using visual studio code as the default git difftool

Sorry, I should have mentioned that is what my gitconfig was set to originally. It seems like $LOCAL opens fine, but $REMOTE opens a file "/tmp/******_filename", where the 6 stars seem to be a random combination of characters and numbers You should. Nevermind. The file naming is normal, it's how gi...

Re: Using visual studio code as the default git difftool

You may want to add --new-window to the parameters as well to open th...

I don't know, I don't have the flatpak version, I use the normal one. I don't have a single flatpak application installed actually so I'm not sure how they get lau...
