This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

This will show you all installed packages: dpkg -l . In X you could use synaptic package manager.

Note that this only displays the applications installed through the package manager. It does not show applications that are installed from source etc. – Bram May 9 '12 at 12:05
