My 'UBUNTU 14.04' takes too much time after first boot. Well genius people will have many tricks and tweaks to speed up their systems but as a beginner I am researching in the internet about following things which can possibly boost up performance of Ubuntu:
- Packages / Software installed in my #Ubuntu.
- Distinguishing useful / obsolete software.
- Removing unnecessary software, Releasing space, which can increase the speed.
This could be one way of solving the problem of slow performance of speed.
Today I will show some ways to see the packages and software installed in Ubuntu.
- Synaptic Package Manager
To open the Synaptic Package Manager in terminal type:
This will open the GUI of Synaptic Manager. From there you can explore the installed packages.
2. dpkg --get-selections
aptitude search '~i!~M'
4. Create Backup
Create a backup of what packages are currently installed:
dpkg --get-selections > list.txt
Then (on another system) restore installations from that list:
sudo dpkg --set-selections < list.txt
To get rid of stale packages
sudo apt-get autoremove
To get installed like at backup time (i.e. to install packages set by
sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade
There are many documentations available in the internet and I searched only few intelligent peoples' brain. There are many users out there with creative ideas to manipulate terminals and bash scripts. it can by you as well.
So now I know to list out all the packages and save them in txt file. Next time I will show some methods to remove the old and obsolete packages. In a few blogs we will be able to maintain the speed of our OS i.e. UBUNTU
See you guys soon.
