    Great time saver
    Except one problem for me:
    On "dselect" I got "command not found". That was on a fresh Kubuntu Gutsy install.
    What worked, however, was to load the file into Synaptic.

    Code:
    cat toremove | xargs --replace=+ sudo apt-get -y remove +
    Short answer:
    It removes all packages listed in 'toremove'.
    Code:
    man cat
    man xargs
    man apt-get
    Long answer:
    'toremove' is a file with all the packages you wish to remove listed, one package per line. 'cat' lists them all and the pipe '|' pumps the list into 'xargs'. 'xargs' runs 'sudo apt-get -y remove +' where '+' is replaced with the name of a package. 'xargs' runs it once for each package. Cool, eh?

    Re: HowTo: Create a list of installed packages

    Any idea how to list installed packages from the official ubuntu repository not any other repository, source install or manually downloaded deb package.
    Your freedom is worth more than you think. Take advantage of it while you can.
    I take Ubuntu

    Re: HowTo: Create a list of installed packages

    I am not aware of any apt-* or dpkg command that will definitely indicate the repository from which a package came.
    I did notice, however, a certain pattern which seems to suggest when a package comes from some source other than an official repo:

    17:18:56 cyrano@farmer:~% apt-cache policy acroread
    acroread:
    Installed: 8.1.2-0medibuntu1
    Candidate: 8.1.2-0medibuntu1
    Version table:
    *** 8.1.2-0medibuntu1 0
    100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
    17:19:07 cyrano@farmer:~% apt-cache policy gnome-panel
    gnome-panel:
    Installed: 1:2.20.1-0ubuntu1
    Candidate: 1:2.20.1-0ubuntu1
    Version table:
    *** 1:2.20.1-0ubuntu1 0
    500 http://archive.ubuntu.com gutsy-updates/main Packages
    100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
    1:2.20.0.1-0ubuntu6 0
    500 http://archive.ubuntu.com gutsy/main Packages
    The packages from the official repos seem to report
    http://archive.ubuntu.com while all other packages seem to report /var/lib/dpkg/status.

    Based on this pattern, I wrote this perl script which lists packages which are installed on the system grouped according to the repo:

    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/perl
    use strict;
    use warnings;
    
    my @pkg;
    open(PACKAGES,"COLUMNS=500 dpkg -l |") || die;
    while (<PACKAGES>) {
        if (m/^ii/) {
    	my ($pkg)=($_=~m/^ii\s+(\S+)\s+/);
    	push(@pkg,$pkg)
        }
    }
    close(PACKAGES);
    
    my %dat;
    foreach my $pkg (@pkg) {
        open(APT,"apt-cache policy $pkg |") || die;
        my $in_version_section=0;
        while (my $line=<APT>) {
    	if ($line=~m/^\s*Installed: (.*)/) {
    	    ($dat{$pkg}->{version})=($line=~m/^\s*Installed: (.*)/);
    	} elsif ((!$in_version_section)&&(defined($dat{$pkg}->{version})) && ($line=~m/^\s+\S{3}\s+\S+/)) {
    	    my ($a_version)=($line=~m/^\s+\S{3}\s+(\S+)/);
    	    if ($a_version eq $dat{$pkg}->{version}) {
    		$in_version_section=1;	    
    		next;
    	    }
    	} elsif (($in_version_section) && ($line=~m/^\s+\d+\s+\S+/)) {
    	    ($dat{$pkg}->{repo})=($line=~m/^\s+\d+\s+(\S+)/);
    	    last;
    	}
        }
        close(APT);
    }
    
    my %repo;
    
    foreach my $pkg (keys %dat) {
        my $version=$dat{$pkg}->{version};
        my $repo=$dat{$pkg}->{repo};
        push(@{$repo{$repo}},"$pkg version $version");
    }
    
    foreach my $repo (keys %repo) {
        print "$repo:\n";
        foreach (@{$repo{$repo}}) {
    	print "    $_\n";
        }
    }

    Re: HowTo: Create a list of installed packages

    I wanted a list of packages with their descriptions, so I used:

    dpkg -l | grep '^[D|+i]' >> installed_dpkg_l.txt

    Appreciate that this is four weeks after your post, but since no-one else has yet made a suggestion, how about temporarily editing your sources.list file to only the official repositories (or whatever you're interested in) and then running:
    Code:
    aptitude search . | grep ^i
    ??

    Think that should do it...?
