Find list of programs installed.
 
How do you find the list of programs/applications installed on ubuntu?

pljvaldez 01-04-2008 05:07 PM

dpkg --get-selections

Open the package manager (Adept or Synaptic).

deostroll 01-04-2008 05:22 PM

Is there no gui application for this...?

fragos 01-04-2008 06:18 PM

Synaptic is a GUI package. System-> Administration-> Synaptic Package Manager

Is there any tutorial or guide pertaining to this command? I find it a bit slow deciphering the meaning of what it outputs...!

I use a very old unsupported version of ubuntu. Does this mean my synaptic won't get the proper updates when the application starts?

Unsupported says it all. Synaptics will work with repositories that are based on the libraries associated with that Ubuntu release. Over time changes will only be made to packages associated with the more recent releases. If you want recent versions of various packages, you should install Ubuntu 7.10.

But what do I do if say I want to install the latest kernel release. (Not that I know how to or realize its inherent complexities, but anyway).

You can download the latest release here. Normal procedure is to burn this ISO image onto a CD which you can do by clicking on the ISO icon.

If you don't have a CD burner this is one of many sites that will sell a CD.

You'll want to back up your data. I usually create a partition on my disk for this purpose.
