How to List the Pre-installed Packages in Raspbian

0

Whenever there is a new release of Rasbian I always wonder what packages are installed by default. Sometimes this affects my old tutorials as I want to know if I need to bother telling people to install packages that are now included by default.

The latest version of Raspian is currently : 2016-02-09-raspbian-jessie

The pre-installed packages marked as “automatic” can be listed using :

apt-mark showauto

Those marked as manually installed can be listed using :

apt-mark showmanual

If you want to save the list as a text file you can use :

apt-mark showauto > packagelist.txt

or

apt-mark showmanual > packagelist.txt

There are usually 400-500 packages.
