I was working with the libmotif-dev 2.3.4-10 package on Ubuntu16.04. Recently when i moved to the 18.04 platform, the libmotif-dev package 2.3.8-2build1 broke my package compilation process. So I am forced to use the earlier package 2.3.4-10 till a more stable package is available on 18.04 platform.

Here is what I did:

  1. I update the "/etc/apt/sources.list" file to pick up the 16.04 repositories and ran sudo apt-get update.
  2. I tried to install the libmotif-dev package using sudo apt-get install libmotif-dev=2.3.4-10.
  3. However the program informs me that libmotif-dev has other dependencies for which only the 2.3.8 version will be downloaded and hence will be incomptatible.

Please tell me how can I install the 2.3.4 version on Ubuntu 18.04, with dependencies also in 2.3.4 and not in 2.3.8.

Any help would be really appreciated.
