try the following commands in a terminal (you can do this as a regular
user, no need for sudo):
gzip -dc /var/log/installer/initial-status.gz | perl -00 -n -e
'/^Package: (\S+)\s.*?Status: install ok installed\s/s and print "$1\n"'
dpkg --get-selections | perl -n -e '/(\S+)\s+install$/ and print
"$1\n"' | fgrep -xv -f initial-packages > new-packages
/var/log/installer/initial-status.gz contains (unless you have deleted
this file since installation), the list of packages installed. There is
a little more detail in this file which is pared out by the perl command
The second command takes the output of dpkg --get-selections and removes
those in the initial list.
With the above commands, 'new-packages' should contain the list of
packages installed AFTER the initial installation.
