    get a package from 10.04 while using 9.10

    Hello,

    I'd like to get the package usb-creator - 0.2.19, which is found in Lucid Lynx. I'm using Ubuntu 9.10. How do I get this new version of usb-creator while using 9.10?

    Re: get a package from 10.04 while using 9.10

    thanks. 2.19 has been superseded. I got https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/lucid/i...tor-gtk/0.2.22

    But it gives me this error message:
    Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: usb-creator-common (= 0.2.22)
    .

    So I go get usb-creator-common (= 0.2.22), but when I try to install, I get this error message:

    Error: Breaks existing package 'usb-creator-gtk' dependency usb-creator-common (= 0.2.12)
    Help.
    How do I install usb-creator-gtk 0.2.22 so that everything that it needs is installed too?

    Help.
    How do I install both at the same time?
    Do you have USB-creator installed from 9.10's repos? If so, remove all traces of it first and then try to install the .debs.(Make sure you know you have all the dependencies for the program and you arent breaking anything else) you can use:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i package.deb
    to install a package without any dependency handling.

    You might also need to place a Lock on the package in Synaptic so it doesnt try to upgrade to the version in the repos. Im not sure if it will do this though considering its a newer package (I had installed rhythmbox 0.12.8 from a karmic PPA due to Lucid regressions and it still tried to upgrade to the lucid version despite being the same version of rhythmbox, as an example).

    You need the package udisks as suggested in the printout. This is why it can suck trying to install a package on Ubuntu newer than your release. All I can suggest is hunting that package down in deb form, removing the old version from Synaptic, and then trying to install it. Of course, this could keep happening until you end up needing to upgrade kernels, etc.. Give it a shot though.
