Find Installed Packages In Debian Linux


Find installed packages In Debian Linux, by using terminal window commands.

Linux “packages” are collections of software and here are a few ways to quickly check whether a package is currently installed or not.

Find installed packages In Debian Linux.

Type the following command to list all installed packages:

apt list --installed

Press Enter, done.

Find a specific package, by typing:

apt list --installed gedit

Press Enter, done.

You can also use DPKG to find packages, by typing:

dpkg -s packagename

Press Enter, done.

If you prefer using a GUI-based search and find, I recommend Synaptic package manager.

Games For Linux

Windows has always been the preferred platform for gaming, but after STEAM's interest in Linux more game developers are making their games natively available for Linux.
