I know it is possible to manually inspect
/var/log/apt/history.log, but that is not what I call "easy to use".
So is there a tool that will parse those log files, and show me the packages that have been installed, sorted by date, so I can mark the ones I wish to uninstall, press a button, and they get uninstalled?
I need something that's not Ubuntu-specific, because I'm on Debian 7.4, and it needs to catch all packages - even packages installed through
So far, I know of these programs that have somethings similar, but not quite what I need:
- Synaptic has File→History, but it shows only packages installed through Synaptic.
- Ubuntu Software Center had something like that, but it is Ubuntu-only. Not sure if it catches things installed outside of Ubuntu Software Center.
