Debain atp-get question


hi all!

today I had a problem with the system fonts and to try to solve it I installed about 300MB of fonts with apt-get ( ). Then I understood that the problem was inside one configuration file, so all the fonts that I installed today are perfectly useless for me and I'd like to save some hard disk space by deleting them!

Is it possible to know all the packages I've installed today with apt-get? Is there a way to check it? Unfortunately I've already deleted all the packages inside /varcache/apt/archives....

please let me know!

bye all!

i would suggest you use:
dpkg -l | less
this will list out your installed packages page by page...much easier to see this way.

thank you all for the answers!

I'm going to try as soon as I get home this afternoon... meanwhile, I didn't understand very well if doing so the list that appear will show me also the installation date of the packages...


because if the output of these commands you wrote is similar to the output of:

dpkg --get-selections

... it won't be veryuseful for me!

ciaooooooo

as I expected the list that appear by typing your commands in a shell, doesn't show the installation date of each package! it's similar to dpkg --get-selections

so for me it's impossible do delete just the font packages that I installed 2 days ago!


so I must think there's no way to understand which packages I've installed in a particular day.... anybody can help me?



bye all
