One can use upate/config alternatives for multiple versions of a given application, however, for WSJTX it's not very practical.
Over the years, when using distro-installed versions of WSJTX, I found easiest to do as you suggested; uninstall the old version, then install the new when an RC has been released.
I do copy / backup / rename my ~/.local/WSJTX directory so I can easily restore for whatever version I am using.
For RC5, I used the *.deb file you all posted on Joe's website, and it's working as expected. I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 so I would think any of the resent Mint flavors should work equally as well.

In the protocol document it states that one should install 2.1.0-rc5 in a different directory than the one used for 2.0. I will admit that though I use Linux I am not all that well versed in it. Does this rule apply to Linux or just to Windows? And if it does apply to Linux how do I install into a different directory? I used all the rc packages when the move to 2.0 from 1.9 was made with no problems.Hi Bill,
