    How can I get a list of programs i downloaded today?

    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.
    Seek the truth.

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

    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
