Install multiple versions

What do I have to do to keep 2.6 installed along with 2.8?

Install 2.6 after you've installed 2.8.

And make sure that both are installed to different directories.

Depends on your Linux distribution. E.g. you may have to override an "obsoletes."

Or maybe you're using Microsoft Windows or Mac OS X?

Old thread, but I have the same question, and do not comprehend clearly the solutions suggested here. I am running Ubuntu 13.10, and would like to install the experimental version Gimp 2.9.1 alongside 2.8.8.

Can you tell me exactly what I need do to make certain that 2.9.1 installs in a different directory, etc.

Thanks.

I wrote an article showing how to install different versions of Gimp in different prefixes, in Linux:

I don't know anything about installing Gimp in Windows.
