Hi all After having tried many ways to solve my issues with browser and mediaplayer in (see earlier posts here) I will now do a full reset and try to get everything working again. Of course I've done a full backup, but what I want too is a list of all additional apps and libs and repositories I've installed form the Jolla store as well from Warehouse. Any hint how to do it with some commd line command to get the output in a text file? Would help a lot to get my resetted system quickly running again as i had it beforw. Thanks so much!

This may be somewhere near what you're asking for, I think......

In terminal, type/paste this;

pkcon --filter installed get-packages | sed "s/.*deinstall//" | sed "s/install$//g" > ~/pkglist

then open pkglist which should be found in /home/nemo..

rpm -qa --qf "%{NAME} " > ~/pkgs.txt

gives a list of everything you installed yourself, as above the file pkgs.txt will be found in /home/nemo.

ssu lr > ~/repos.txt

gives a list of all repositories, enabled and disabled.

If you have zypper installed, you could also try

zypper pa -i

which lists all installed packages (including those part of Sailfish itself) with version numbers and the repositories they're from. If you want to export that list to a file, try

zypper pa -i > everything.txt

Maybe someone could package http://machinery-project.org/ for Sailfish to make this stuff a whole lot easier.

It would be really useful to have a simple gui that shows installed apps and enabled repositories (with version numbers). Restoring from backup could also be accomplished by having a script generated. Eventually this may make sense to integrate into the core backup functionality.

It would be fantastic to have an app, similar to Aptik.
