I have a Raspbian system which I need to list all the packages that have been installed since the machine was setup.

Obviously I can show what now is installed, but I'd like just a list of the packages that did not come with the distribution... ie the ones that have been installed since the machine had been setup.

Is there a way of doing this?

You can see the history of what you have installed by viewing the apt-get history file here: /var/log/apt/history.log
