Printing a list of whats installed on your machine

Ok, so this sounds backwards, seeing whats on your machine i mean. Well this, the reason i wanted to do this was to see whats on Xubuntu and Ubuntu. So i can see if theres any packages i may have missed on a XFCE on Ubuntu base install. Make sense? Good!

Open up terminal and enter the following line:

dpkg --get-selections > installed-software

Now open your Home folder and you should have a file there called ‘installed software’. Nifty eh?
