There are 4 packages I am using on 12.04 which are not available on 12.10:
- xkcd-browser ;-)
- xserver-xorg-input-synaptics (it allows for touchpad rotation that could go along screen rotation with randr)
Is there any way of more-or-less automatic reverse-backporting?
(I know, that one "solution" is to wait. But unless I know for how long I should do it, it doesn't solve anything.)
The process involving the
packportpackage illustrated below on example "xkcd-browser" doesn't work for none of the 4 packages; however the error report seems to be different for each item.
