  • Copy p4merge to /usr/local/bin/p4merge
  • Download P4V.dmg and copy p4merge.app to /Applications
  • Configure Git:
$ chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/p4merge
$ git config --global merge.tool p4merge
$ git config --global mergetool.prompt false
$ git config --global mergetool.keepBackup false
$ git config --global mergetool.p4merge.path /usr/local/bin/p4merge
  • git mergetooland git difftool will launch p4merge now.
