Ubuntu :: Any Way To Downgrade To 9.04

Feb 5, 2010

I am having problems with 9.10 (first and foremost it won't boot properly, opens in low graphics mode only) and wishing I'd stuck with 9.04! Only find threads that didn't get answered or closed threads (including one about 'partial upgrades', which I did after booting in low graphics mode the first time. I am new to, or at least pretty green about Ubuntu and pretty much always install any updates offered - don't shoot me) Anyhow, I am hoping to avoid a full re-installation, but is there any way of going back, downgrading to 9.04?

Ubuntu :: Downgrade From 10.04 64 Bit To 32 Bit?

Jul 24, 2010

I have used the 64 bit version of Ubuntu 10.04 for a while and am satisfied with it. The problem is when I watch video (Bloomberg) and listen to radio at the same time, it uses up a lot of memory (My PC has 3 GB of Ram). It degrades the performance of the PC. I also read that the only reason to use a 64 bit version is when a PC has 4 GB of Ram. Therefore, I wonder if it is possible to downgrade my current 64 bit version of Ubuntu 10.04 to a 32 bit version.

Ubuntu :: Downgrade From 11.04 To 10.10?

Feb 27, 2011

Last night I upgraded to Natty 11.04 and did not like it. I downgraded to 10.10.
I'm having a problem booting to a stable kernel. 11.04 uses 2.6.38. When I downgraded to 10.10, 2.6.38 was still at the top of Grub's list. When I boot there is a big black screen with a login and password. I was able to get to Ubuntu by holding down the shift key when rebooting and booted to 2.6.35-25-generic. I would rather not have to do this every time I turn on my computer. I went to Synaptic to delete 2.6.38, and did not see the version listed. I've read a lot (but I'm not a programmer). There isn't anything obvious (from this pea brain's perspective) to fix my problem.

Ubuntu :: Downgrade Back To KDE 3?

Jun 17, 2010

I have currently the LATEST version of Kubuntu 10.04 and I just DO NOT LIKE kde 4.. There are things I liked better in 3 than I did 4. I hate the desktop containers I hate when you turn them off and put your icons on the desktop they pop back to where they were before I just found it to have more JUNKWARE than I wanted. I just want simple KDE 3 back.

I had KUBUNTU 8.10 and thinking I was getting KDE 3 it gave me KDE 4.0.0 ( the one where the taskbar was black )

Is there a way to find to get I guess 8.04 to get KDE 3.5 back?

Ubuntu :: Downgrade GDM To 2.20 In 10.04 Lucid?

Sep 9, 2010

The result After following these instructions you'll get:

-GDM 2.20, with all the features(themes, feature complete, configurable...)

-No Plymouth, or any graphical boot (haven't found a way to run old gdm along with Plymouth)

These instructions are based on this post [URL] but they won't work on Lucid 10.04 Download GDM 2.20 on this link. Remove gdm and install the downloaded package.


sudo apt-get remove gdm
sudo dpkg -i gdm*.deb
sudo mv /etc/init/gdm.conf /etc/init/gdm.bak

Run these commands (related to a bug in this package):


cd /usr
sudo mkdir X11R6
cd X11R6
sudo ln -s /usr/bin bin

Disable the graphical boot (reason: Plymouth loads X, and old gdm can't connect, fixes are welcome)

-Edit /etc/default/grub and change








sudo update-grub2

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Downgrade To 10.04

Oct 16, 2010

how is it possible to downgrade to the Ubuntu 10.04 from Ubuntu 10.10?

I have two reasons for doing it:

1. My internal microphone stopped working in new kernel (ThinkPad Egde 13')

2. New Ubuntu's look and feel is ugly.

Probably this problem may be solved with installing the theme, but it seems not to affect the font, which is the most terrible thing in new release's design. Is it possible to have the 10.04's look and feel here in 10.10?

Ubuntu :: How To Downgrade Nautilus

Nov 1, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 has nautilus 2.31, which has a couple of features i don't like:space bar doesn't open multiple folders, like ENTER does. Sometimes it's more comfortable to hit the space bar instead of the enter key. I could do this in fomer versions (ubuntu 8.10 and 9.04).when i copy folders or files which are called the same as the ones in the destination folder, the prompt to replace/merge has the options accept and skip, and if i want to do the same every time the soincidence of names takes place, y have to first tick "always do the same" and then click "replace", for example. In former versions of nautilus/ubuntu (8.10, 9.04 at least) the prompt had buttons replace-replace all-skip-skip all, so a single click could do the job.How can i go back to those versions of nautilus, while still using ubuntu 10.04?

Ubuntu :: How Do I Downgrade Sun Java?

Feb 24, 2011

I had a performance problem with Sun Java 1.6.20 when running OOo Base some time back. When I upgraded to 1.6.22 the problem was resolved. The other day I upgraded to 1.6.24, and my performance problem is back. So I would like to go back to 1.6.22.Well, I found the debs for 1.6.22, used Synaptic to remove (complete removal) sun-java-jre and sun-java-bin. Then I tried to install 1.6.22. I got a message saying the package was broken. If I respond to repair the package, 1.6.22 is upgraded to 1.6.24. If I do not ask that the package be repaired, java does not work properly.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Downgrade To 10.10

Apr 29, 2011

When you get to the login screen at the bottom there is a box where you can select "Ubuntu Classic" and that will take you to a Gnome 2.3 desktop.I just updated to 11.04 which is so disappointing.It is like I am coming from multi-thread world back to single-thread world. Any in one workspace, you can only do one thing: either surfing internet or something else, but you cannot do both at the same time.On 10.10, we can do multiple things simultaneously and we can switch between each other easily. Now the good feature of 10.10 is completely discarded.

Ubuntu :: How To Downgrade Firefox 4.0.1 To 3.x

Jun 19, 2011

i use ubuntu 10.04 and firefox 4.0.1. lately flash plugin has been crashing a lot. its usually only when i go from full screen to small screen. i'll press esc during a video on videos and it shows the sad looking lego brick and says "the adobe flash plugin has crashed".

i reinstalled flash player and the flash plugin. while installing the flash plugin for firefox, i noticed that it said that the flash plugin was supported for firefox 2.x, and 3.x. i figure if i downgrade my firefox to 3.x it'll solve my problems... but how do i do that without losing everything?

Ubuntu :: Downgrade Firefox 5 To 4?

Jun 28, 2011

I thought I would find this everywhere but I haven't. I upgraded to Firefox 5 when it came into Mozilla's stable PPA but about 60% of my plugins are not working. I've tried forcing compatibility using the Nightly Tester tools but still have tons non-functional. Is there a safe procedure to downgrade to v4.x? Is there a PPA with 4 still available (Mozilla simply removed it entirely). I'm using Lucid 10.4.2 32bit. I'm normally pretty careful on upgrades but this one got past me. This new release schedule is going to kill Firefox if they don't solve the plugin issue.

Ubuntu :: Hardy Downgrade From Firefox 3.6 To 3.0?

Jul 14, 2010

Short version: I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) and need downgrade ASAP from Firefox 3.6 back down to Firefox 3.0. In Synaptic, the firefox-3.0 package cleverly now shows up as version 3.6. How can I downgrade? I'm open to anything. Long version:

I just did a security update on my Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) installation. It upgraded Firefox from 3.0.x (x=19, I think) to 3.6.x. This broke an absolutely critical plugin for me, pretty much the one and only plugin I care about, and one that doesn't support Firefox beyond 3.0. More on the plugin below if you care.

But for now I MUST downgrade immediately to Firefox 3.0.x. I realize that The Powers That Be probably forced us to upgrade to 3.6 for a reason (i.e. 3.0 isn't supported anymore, or something like that) but I really can't deal with a 3.0-3.6 sea change right now. I need to get the FF install back down to 3.0 pronto. My work is piling up fast.

If there's no way to do it within the carefully security-controlled world of officially-supported 8.04 LTS, I'm open to steps that will force it. I just need my FF 3.0 to work for a couple more months.

Related question: If I downgrade, what are the chances that FF 3.0 will be able to parse my (carefully crafted) profile, now that the newer 3.6 has gone in there and presumably mucked it up with 3.6-specific things? I can extract the 3.0 profile file(s) from a backup if needed (a snapshot was taken just before the security upgrade!) I'm not going to say what the plugin is, but it's critical to me. I literally can do virtually nothing without it. I will find a replacement for it (one that supports 3.6+) when I tackle the OS upgrade, but NOT NOW

Sidebar 2: I know 8.04 is a little old, but I don't have the time right now to deal with upgrading. It's a massive undertaking for me to do that, and I plan on doing it in the fall (read: not now!) As part of that OS upgrade (wipe and reinstall, actually), THAT is when I would tackle migrating to a newer version of Firefox, including figuring out all the preference adjustments to get it to my liking and, most importantly, get my critical plugin to work. And that's also when I would upgrade to FF 3.6 (or whatever) on ALL of my machines. I have several computers (Linux and Windows), and I keep them all at the same identical level of Firefox, with the same prefs, and that same critical plugin, so I have the same browsing experience and feature set no matter which computer I'm at.

Sidebar 3: While I'd love to sanctimoniously wag my finger at Ubuntu for doing this Terrible Thing to us users, I imagine there were good reasons for it and perhaps was even some debate about forcing a 3.0 -> 3.6 update. I'd love to see that debate, if someone can point me to it (e.g. a bug discussion thread on launchpad).

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Downgrade From 10.10 Back To 10.04

Oct 27, 2010

How to downgrade from 10.10 back to 10.04? I had 10.04 and was using this for a while and was very happy with this release. though recently I upgraded to 10.10. Since doing so, My screen flickers very annoyingly every 10 seconds or so. I've searched the forms best I could and it appears some other are having this problem and there really is no fix at this time, but to go back to 10.04 - so that is where I am at this moment.
