OpenCPN 5.0 not working on Linux Lite, can I go back to 4.4?

I have a Netbook running Linux Lite that I had OpenCPN 4.x running on successfully and loved it all. Saw the buzz about OpenCPN 5.0 and thought, "Cool, I'll install that!". Ooops. OpenCPN 5.0 starts up and completely locks. Have to reboot the PC to close it. Removed that, so starting fresh. Can I get 4.4 reinstalled somehow? Can't seem to find the software or instructions for old version. Help! Need my OpenCPN back.

You can of course build any older version from source.

If you are going back, I would go back to version 4.8.8.
The current manual has not been changed from that version.
https://opencpn.org/wiki/dokuwiki/do...pn_user_manual


You will find startup instructions there.
The manual is available as an android app. It is epub and very useful.
