Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kpackagekit

In a week of using Kubuntu 9.04 I've installed three sets of Software
Updates and dozens of packages on the advice of strangers on IRC.  The
latter told me variously to use apt, aptitude, dpkg, getlibs,
KPackageKit, and /usr/bin/install-package.   But there's no central
place that records what program installed which package when.

I was happy to find /var/log/dpkg.log , but packages have now scrolled
off the top of that.

I suggest KPackageKit present a [History] button that shows a list of
all packages installed by date, and the program used.  For bonus points
it could have a "notes" field.

There's a [History] button in KPackageKit's Software Updates pane, but
it is not remotely useful.
