How to go back to transmission 2.94 from 3.00


As the title says it, how do I go back to 2.94, I am on 16.04 and foolishly updated to 3.00. I tried adding repo from 17.10 Artful because that distro has 2.94 but it didn't work. How can I go back, if someone could guide me step by step I would be ever grateful.

why do you want to go back? Adding an "alien" repo will not help, but may make things worse.
you might want to to use this repo: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/bionic/...e/transmission. Uninstall 3.0 and reinstall from here.

That alien repo you speak of is the same place *launchpad* you pointed me to only yours is Bionic while mine was Artful and it did not work. I am marking this thread as solved as all the ways I tried failed. And I've decided to stay on with 3, even though it has a lot of bugs that were not there before.

It begs the question where you installed that 3.00 from (and 2.94 before that). Because the current version in 16.04 is 2.84.

I got it from the transmission repository sudo add-apt-repository ppa:transmissionbt/ppa , it's a ppa.

The PPA doesn't have 2.94 anymore, but you can downgrade to 2.84 from Ubuntu universe:
Code:
sudo apt-add-repository -r ppa:transmissionbt/ppa
sudo apt install transmission=2.84-3ubuntu3.1
