List installed software from non-free repo

Postby Revenger » 2011-01-29 16:41

I was wondering is it posible to list all software installed from non-free and/or contrib repository?

Do you need bad help?

it doesn't tell you where it came from, it just tells you if you installed it

Using aptitudes visual interface it may be possible to configure it to show you contrib and non-free..
If using aptitudes visual mode is an option for you, let me know and I'll double check.

Hmm. Maybe I got it wrong, but doesn't vrms do exactly what Revenger was asking?

Code: Select all
$ vrms
               Non-free packages installed on tuike

firmware-linux-nonfree    Binary firmware for various drivers in the Linux kerne

                Contrib packages installed on tuike

flashplugin-nonfree       Adobe Flash Player - browser plugin

  1 non-free packages, 0.1% of 1250 installed packages.
  1 contrib packages, 0.1% of 1250 installed packages.

First I've heard of vrms. Great tip. Someone should fork it so an ascii RMS will show up in the terminal admonishing you in varying degrees based on how much non-free/contrib is on your system.
I wish for a conjugal visit and world peace. (Don't want to seem selfish.)

the package description says there are some plans for more functions in the future

I ain't got no damned contrib or non-free packages installed on this partition...

vrms didn't find my flash plugin, but it's also not installed the debian way...

Not sure about you guys, but in my GNOME install, all I have to do is open Synaptic and press the Origin button in the bottom-left. The list of repositories is in the upper-left. Highlight non-free, and the packages in that repository show up on the top-right. Is this what you are talking about?
Currently running Debian 9 GNOME on a Dell OptiPlex 3010, Dell Inspiron 1545, and a Dell Inspiron 531.

Cool, didn't think of that. Just select Something (non-free) and you will have list of available packages in that category. Installed ones should be green like on this pic.

This should be on one line:
Code: Select all
dpkg-query -W --showformat='${Package}\t${Section}\n' |grep -e non-free -e contrib
