I really need the older version of this library, and just this library. Please advise how to downgrade and lock the version.


Download the Utopic package, install and set on hold

wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/m/meanwhile/libmeanwhile1_1.0.2-4.1ubuntu1_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i libmeanwhile1_1.0.2-4.1ubuntu1_i386.deb
sudo apt-mark hold libmeanwhile1

Check it
