I want to reinstall my linux system (specifically linux mint). I have kept important data elsewhere, so I can safely remove everything.
However, I want to do the following:
- save the list of packages I have installed so far
- after reinstall take the backup list and use it to install packages
Are there tools that can assist in doing this. I know I can use
dpkg -l to get list but perhaps I only want the leafs - packages that no other depend on.
