I don't know if I understand you correctly (or more important,
understand what you want to do), but if all you want is to use an old
version of some package, use Synaptic: search for the package you want,
and from “Packages” menu, choose “Force Version...” (or hit CTRL+E),
choose the version you want and from the “Packages” menu again choose
“Lock Version”.

If you can't find the version you want to revert to in Synaptic, then
you have to find the DEB file your self and install it manually and do
the above procedure to lock the version.  Search Ubuntu¹ or Debian²
archive site for the DEB file or ask some *TRUSTED* friend to send it
you by mail or any other means.
