Hi: Is there any way I can get a list of programs I downloaded today? I want to get rid of one, but can't remember its name offhand.

System -> Administration -> Synaptic
And then File menu -> History will show you all the packages you have installed (ever).

sudo dpkg -l > list

September 23rd, 2008, 08:57 AM
sudo dpkg -l > list

dpkg -l => It gives all your installed package but not sorted by date.

The OP needs to know the installed package in a specific date

Or if one is using aptitude

less /var/log/aptitude
