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

the public writings of RMS and others that explain why use of each of the
