Installing Beyond Compare on Manjaro / Arch 64-bit

How to get Beyond Compare 3.3.8, build 16340 to run on Manjaro or Arch Linux (64-bit):

The AUR package didn’t work for me, so I took these steps instead:

  1. Download and untar the package from:
    http://www.scootersoftware.com/bcompare-3.3.8.16340.tar.gz

  2. Run install.sh:

    sudo ./install.sh
    
  3. From a terminal, run:

    sudo pacman -S lib32-libxft lib32-libxinerama
    

It should now have been added to the menu and be runnable (“bcompare”, not “BCompare”).
