I attempted to downgrade CUPS yesterday by pinning it to the 11.10 version, but the process failed.
However, now apt-get and synaptic refuse to work (and so does dpkg) due to dependency problems. In various threads I found "apt-get -f install" as a possible solution, but it only produces the following output:
Any idea of how I can get rid of that problem? Help will be greatly appreciated!
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of cups:
cups-filters (1.0.18-0ubuntu0.1) breaks cups (<< 1.5.0-16) and is installed.
Version of cups to be configured is 1.5.0-8.
dpkg: error processing cups (--configure):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
No apport report written because MaxReports is reached already
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
My version of Ubuntu is 12.04
Oh, and by the way... it would be ok to have my old (12.04 that is) version of CUPS again.
