[Ubuntu] Downgrade packages from PPA to official repo version

Recommended Posts

Syanide    613

This app (script) removes a PPA and automatically downgrades the packages to a version from the Ubuntu repository (useful if you've found the official version more stable).

Download the .deb file from here, and to use it, type this in console:

sudo ppa-purge ppa:ppa-name

Replace ppa-name with the ppa from your sources list you want to remove. Works with Karmic and Lucid.

You could just disable the PPA in Synaptic, reload your package info and then reinstall the package.
