I am now running Ubuntu 15.04 latest version on my Dell laptop(Inspiron 15R).

I find this version almost unstable, and not really good for my work. I want to downgrade this version to 14.04.

How should I proceed?


This can be done, albeit with a lot of work - so is not really worth it.

Your best bet is to install 14.04 from scratch - ie. a fresh install.

However, if you really want to do a downgrade, take a look at this answer.

  • Thank you, but for a fresh install I'd loose all the installed packages and data ? – Tony Tom Jul 6 '15 at 17:35
  • @tonytom Yes unfortunately - so you'll need to do a backup before installation. – TellMeWhy Jul 6 '15 at 17:36
