How to keep both 0.4.4b and 0.5.4?

I’m using Ubuntu 14.04, 32-bit (And would like to switch to Linux Mint. :frowning: ). And I have Pencil0.4.4b. When I try to install Pencil 0.5.4, I got this message:

If people want to make linux package, you gotta make sure that it’s not gonna overwrite the previous version. Can anyone please remake the linux package? Thanks.

Also, you can run Pencil2D 0.5.4 with Wine. But I haven’t tested it. Not sure about the speed of it or how stable will it become. I’m working with a project here so I gotta use Pencil 0.4.4b because it’s more stable. I would like to use Pencil2D and find some bugs actually. I’ll be use it if I can finish with my project in time.

I thought they had fixed that problem

One thing you can try is removing the 0.4 package, but keep a copy of the binary. I’m pretty sure the 0.4 binary is the whole program, so you should be able to copy that file (sudo cp /usr/bin/pencil /usr/bin/pencil-0.4), uninstall 0.4, and then install 0.5

When running 0.4 you’ll need to specify “pencil-0.4” rather than just “pencil”.
