Download the installer .msi file and double click it for installation.
Download the .dmg file and open in from your download folder. Drag & drop the BabelEdit.app onto your Application folder.
Many distros like Fedora and CentOS come with Flatpak pre-installed. If your distro does not support Flatpak out of the box check out the Flatpak Installation Guide.
Download the BabelEdit Flatpak and run the flatpak installer:
flatpak install /your/download/path/BabelEdit-[version].flatpak
BabelEdit should automatically appear in your Applications list. Some systems might also require a restart.
You might see the following error during installation:
The application com.codeandweb.babeledit/x86_64/master requires the runtime org.freedesktop.Platform/x86_64/20.08 which was not found
If this is the case, the Flathub repo was not added to your system. It contains the base image, BabelEdit needs to run.
Open a command line and run:
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
After that, try installing BabelEdit again.
Start by downloading BabelEdit .deb.
Open the downloads folder and click the BabelEdit-X.Y.Z.deb to install it using the software installer.
You can also use command line:
sudo apt-get install ./BabelEdit-5.0.0.deb
If Flatpak is not an option and your distribution does not support apt you can simply unpack the .deb file.

ar x BabelEdit-2.8.0.deb tar xvf data.tar.xz
