    How can I undo updates in Lubuntu

    yesterdag I installed an automatic update, including an update of flashplayer.
    This morning I discovered that Flash plugin crashes 'all the time'.
    I therefor would like to undo the update regarding flashplayer.

    How can I do that?

    You can ls (list) all the previous versions inside apt cache. (if any)

    Code:
    ls /var/cache/apt/archives | grep -i flash
    if you see the older version of flash player there .. you can connect to that directory and install it.. FIRST remove the current version.

    Code:
    cd /var/cache/apt/archives/ 
    sudo apt-get purge adobe-* 
    sudo dpkg -i adobe-flashplugin_........deb
    If things goes good and flash plugin not crash anymore, then you can hold the package from being updated in future.

    Code:
    echo "adobe-flashplugin" hold | sudo dpkg --set-selections

    hi NikTh,
    I tried that before, but when i open Thread tools there is no option 'mark this thread as solved', as in your signature.
    It only shows: View First Unread
