Switch between Regolith PPAs
This page describes how to configure the package system to consume Regolith packages between a set of PPAs.
See this section for a description of each PPA. By default users will be on the
release PPA which is intended to only be updated upon bug fixes and versioned releases. Here is how to switch to the
unstable PPA, by updating the apt packaging configuration:
- Remove the existing
$ sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:regolith-linux/release
- Add the new
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:regolith-linux/unstable $ sudo apt update
- Upgrade packages to the upgraded versions contained in the new PPA:
$ sudo apt upgrade
To return to the previon configuration, simply follow the steps above but toggle the PPA URIs. So, swap
Once the PPAs have been switched, to revert any unwanted package updates from the
unstable repository, simply install the specific version you wish to revert to. For example, if
regolith-deskop has version 4 in
unstable and version 3 in
release, you would have been upgraded to version 4 after using the
unstable PPA and taking updates. To revert back to version 3 after swapping back to the
release PPA, tell
apt the specific version you wish to install:
$ sudo apt install regolith-desktop=3
The general form is
apt install <package name>=<package version>. You will be notified by
apt that the operation will result in a downgrade package version.
