Installation of the last upgraded version in Ubuntu

I use UbuntuStudio 18.04.2 LTS.

I downloaded the last upgraded version of Sweet Home 3D and I decompressed the file.

Well, I put that folder into the old /home/.eteks folder.

But... In that folder there is the old version, too!

Now... I can use the new version, without any problems.

The question is... Can I erase the old version folder?

If I cannot to erase all... Which files can I erase?

I think this issue wouldn't exist if the new version was into the official Ubuntu repository, but...

JUAN, from Chile, South America.

Re: Installation of the last upgraded version in Ubuntu

Your SH3D installation should not be in the /home/.eteks folder, this folder is for your personal additional files like furniture you are adding or plugins.
My SH3D installation e.g. is in the usr/share folder and there in a separate folder for each version of SH3D. In this way, I can test the latest version first before I delete the old one.

I also like to keep several versions around. I use a symbolic link such as Live or Latest to point to the one that desktop users should be using.

I also like keep the install in a filesystem that is separate from the OS (to avoid OS upgrades clobbering anything). Either under /home/local or /usr/local depending on the organisation of the available drives.
