Ubuntu torrents lost after transmission update

I just updated ubuntu from hardy heron to intrepid ipex. I experienced a loss of all torrents of transmission because of its update from 1.06 to 1.34. To finish active torrents

  1. Remove the current transmission (but NOT “completely”) (Synaptic)
  2. Uncheck all repositories (Synaptic)
  3. Download the following hardy version from http://packages.ubuntu.com
    • transmission
    • transmission-common
    • transmission-cli
    • transmission-gtk
  4. Install them (they will complain about the wrong order)
  5. Lock the version (Synaptic)
  6. Check all previous repositories

When you completed all active downloads just unlock transmission with synaptics and update.
