List of software installed in fedora 12


I have installed F12. only the office package. How can I find out which programs are installed ? In fact, my question is if all the installed programs are appearing in the "applications" tab.
Thank you !

I'm not sure about GUI, but here is what you can do on CLI:

# List all installed packages
rpm -qa

# This could be a long list, so u can search a specific package, for e.g.:
rpm -qa | grep -i screen

this is not a long list, it is a HUGE list !

Thank you....but I have in mind only my normal programs. Maybe I am not so clear on what I want.
Anyhow, if I install a new program, in principle it should enter in the aplications menu, isn't ?

rpm -qa | sort > my-packages.txt
.. saves an alphabetic text file in /home/"user"/

rpm -qa --last > last-packages.txt
.. a list with the latest package in line 1.

Not all software will make an entry to the menu.

The command : rpm -ql <package-name>
will show the files, and make it possible to create
an icon / a link.
.....

If you want an answer for an application, please tell which.

Probably this should answer what 'anika.ella' is looking for.

To add to it, if a software is listed under applications menu, it is installed for sure, but the vice-versa does not hold true.
