@distrotube The `apt list --installed` gives you all the installed packages, not all the **explicitly installed** packages. That means you will get all the dependencies that were installed as well. I have been looking for a while for a good way to do this.

@distrotube I started keeping an org-mode file describing what I do to reinstall. I find this to be a better way, cause with a package list, you will get all of the cruft that you were trying to get rid of with the reinstall.

@yisraeldov @distrotube
apt list --installed 2>/dev/null | grep -v automatic
(In a localized terminal the word "automatic" has to be translated)
