Maybe there's an easier way to do it, but this works anyway.
Code: Select all
dpkg-query -W -f '${Package}\t${Section}\n'|grep non-free|awk {'print $1'}

The vrms program will analyze the set of currently-installed packages on a
Debian GNU/Linux system, and report all of the packages from the non-free
tree which are currently installed.
Future versions of vrms will include an option to also display text from
the public writings of RMS and others that explain why use of each of the
installed non-free packages might cause moral issues for some in the Free
Software community. This functionality is not yet included.
