hi i know this is going to sound relay silly but i just recently added some repositories and would like to know if there is a comand to list all the packages in the repository. i am sure there is.
i thought about it and tried

apt-cache search *but it did not work.

also how do you search though packages in just 1 repository and not them all

When I go in synaptic, there's an option under status that says "new in repository". Also, you could select a repository (sources) and pick one from there. Quick Search on the selected repository should just show the ones in the repository.

Hope that helps.

In Synaptic, click the 'Origin' tab in the lower left corner, then select whichever repo you're interested in.
