View Full Version : [SOLVED] Restoring Packages after Upgrade

April 24th, 2018, 07:56 PM
I've been looking around for a way to see what packages I installed after a clean install of 16.04.2.

I've read this: Find all user-installed packages (https://superuser.com/questions/48374/find-all-user-installed-packages)

I have tried Aptik, but I have a (now) usused encrypted folder in / and am doing a clean install of 18.04 so I won't want that encryption stuff replace or restored by Aptik.

I've used the cli from the Superuser post, above and get a long list of packages that includes all the *lib* that the OS uses.

I'm looking for a list of all that I installed only. Like LibreOffice, GTKHash, GSMart.

Can someone point me in a direction?
