Ubuntu – How to list all packages I’ve installed from a particular repository


How can I list all packages I've installed from a particular repository?

How can I list all installed packages that are not available from the main Ubuntu archives, and also see which repositories they came from? (If I knew the answer to this question, I could grep that list for a particular PPA name to find out the answer to my first question.)

Expand the "Installed Software" item in Ubuntu Software Center. You'll see a list of all the different repositories that you've enabled. Clicking on the repo will show you the packages you've installed from each.
