How can I see all my installed program in Ubuntu from command line?
This will send it to a file for you:
dpkg --get-selections > installed-software
from this thread on Ubuntu forums: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=261366
If you hit the Tab button at the command line in most linux distrobutions, it will list everything you can call from the terminal. It'll prompt you something like "Do you want to list all these packages?". Of course you do! Then it'll list em.
As for if Ubuntu does this, I do not recall. I don't have an ubuntu machine handy or I would test this beforehand. Hope that works for you!
