Downgrade Pycharm from AUR

Is this possible to downgrade pycharm professional to some older version from AUR?
If it’s possible how can I do that?

even though the package comes from aur, it’s still installed with pacman. so if the older version is still in the pacman cache, the directions for downgrading a package should work:

If you still have an older version in /var/cache/pacman/pkg, then you can downgrade with… :arrow_down:

sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/name-of-the-package

However, if you do not have the older version in your cache, then your only option to downgrade would be to install the pycharm-community-edition from the Manjaro repository. This will of course not be as functional as the professional edition from the AUR, but it is still at a lower version than what’s in the AUR. :arrow_down:

sudo pacman -S pycharm-community-edition

It will ask you whether you want to replace the AUR version. Answer “yes”.


Simply use a previous version of the PKGBUILD.
If you install those packages the Arch way, simply use a prior commit. If you use a AUR helper, when checking the content of the PKGBUILD, replace it with the content of the prior version.
