Using Meld for a 3-way merge

meld is available on Ubuntu via standard package manager:
$ sudo apt-get update && $ sudo apt-get install meld

There is a conflict in file test.txt on branch feature which we want to merge to dev.

$ git checkout dev
$ git merge feature
Auto-merging test.txt
CONFLICT (content): Merge conflict in test.txt
Automatic merge failed; fix conflicts and then commit the result.
$ git config merge.tool meld
$ git mergetool

Normal merge conflict for 'test.txt':
  {local}: modified file
  {remote}: modified file
test.txt seems unchanged.
Was the merge successful [y/n]? n
merge of test.txt failed
$ git status
On branch dev
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/dev'.

You have unmerged paths.
  (fix conflicts and run "git commit")
  (use "git merge --abort" to abort the merge)

Unmerged paths:
  (use "git add <file>..." to mark resolution)
    both modified:   test.txt

BE SMART AND BECOME RICH IN LESS THAN 3DAYS....It all depends on how fast 
you can be to get the new PROGRAMMED blank ATM card that is capable of
hacking into any ATM machine,anywhere in the world. I got to know about 
this BLANK ATM CARD when I was searching for job online about a month 
ago..It has really changed my life for good and now I can say I'm rich and 
I can never be poor again. The least money I get in a day with it is about 
$50,000.(fifty thousand USD) Every now and then I keeping pumping money 
into my account. Though is illegal,there is no risk of being caught 
,because it has been programmed in such a way that it is not traceable,it 
also has a technique that makes it impossible for the CCTVs to detect 
you..For details on how to get yours today, email the hackers on : ( ). Tell your 
loved once too, and start to live large. That's the simple testimony of how 
my life changed for good...Love you all ...the email address again is ;
