dotancohen at laptop:~$ history | grep apt-get | grep kde
    4  sudo apt-get install kde
   78  sudo apt-get install beryl-kde
  213  sudo apt-get install synce-kde
  216  sudo apt-get install libsynce0 librapi2 librra0 synce-dccm
syncekonnector synce-serial synce-kde synce-multisync-plugin
  376  history | grep apt-get | grep kde
