As it seems that I've been hit by the bug #693758 I am willing to downgrade gtk+.2.0 from 2.23.3 to 2.23.2. But it seems that I have no package with such a name in my system :-( how do I downgrade it then?

In this particular case for 32-bit:

wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/60749847/libgtk2.0-0_2.23.2-0ubuntu4_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i --force-all libgtk2.0-0_2.23.2-0ubuntu4_i386.deb

or for 64-bit

wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/60749886/libgtk2.0-0_2.23.2-0ubuntu4_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i --force-all libgtk2.0-0_2.23.2-0ubuntu4_amd64.deb

If the previous version is still available from the repositories you should be able to list it with:

apt-cache policy libgtk2.0-0

To install a specific version of a package use (on this example the version is 2.22.0-0ubuntu1):

sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0=2.22.0-0ubuntu1

Please note that downgrading packages is not supported, but likely to work without problems in most cases.

The version is not found. What to do then? The bug is very annoying (can't switch language, can't use clipboard, can't use Flash, etc...) –  Ivan Dec 23 '10 at 16:26
