LLE10107 : Howto list the contens of a package with dpkg on debian or ubuntu/kubuntu

Symptom:

You want to know the contents of a package

Cause:

none

Solution:

to list the entire package you can use the following command:

dpkg -c <packagename.deb>

Please note you need to give a *.deb package as a parameter. You can look at the contents of a package before installation.

To look at the contens of an installed package you can use synaptic which has a GUI. From the command line I use debsums which also shows you if the files have been changed.

e.g. debsums mc

(mc stand for the midnicht commander)
