Fixing “This version of ChromeDriver only supports Chrome version 102”┬ácaused by Selenium

Selenium is a tool to automate accessing a browser programatically.

It tends be to ‘locked’ to a particular version of the Chrome Driver.

My system need Chrome Driver 102 – and at the time of writing the Chrome Driver is 107.

As upgrading Selenium is not possible at the moment – here is how you down grade to version 102 of the Chrome Driver in Ubuntu.

How to downgrade to Chrome version 102 in Ubuntu

VERSION_STRING="102.0.5005.115-1" 
wget "https://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/pool/main/g/google-chrome-stable/google-chrome-stable_${VERSION_STRING}_amd64.deb"
sudo dpkg -i "google-chrome-stable_${VERSION_STRING}_amd64.deb"
rm -i "google-chrome-stable_${VERSION_STRING}_amd64.deb"

I have posted this very much as a reference for myself. I hope you have found it useful.
