See installed applications using aptitude


Just a quickie for today--

If you are interested in finding the package name of an application you have installed, here's a quick line to do it:

aptitude search | grep -G "^i"

That's all there is to it. Here's an example:
eyeslocal@buntuputer:~$ aptitude search fire | grep -G "^i"
i firefox-3.0 - safe and easy web browser from Mozilla
i firefox-3.0-gnome-support - Support for Gnome in Mozilla Firefox
i firefox-gnome-support - meta package pointing to the latest gnome-
i gambas2-gb-db-firebird - The Firebird driver for the Gambas databas
Hope that helps someone else other than me...
