This question already has an answer here:

Is there a GUI-based program on Ubuntu that compares two files line by line and indicates where two lines do not match? If not, any console app that does the same thing?

  • meld
  • tkdiff
  • vim

meld is -my- favorite.

Console has a command for it: diff {file1} {file2}
