Things I don't want to look for twice..

deb package status

As I’m always forgetting the meaning on the letters from “dpkg –list”, here’s the meaning:

First character:

u: Unknown (an unknown state)
i: Install (marked for installation)
r: Remove (marked for removal)
p: Purge (marked for purging)
h: Hold
Second Character:

n: Not- The package is not installed
i: Inst – The package is successfully installed
c: Cfg-files – Configuration files are present
u: Unpacked- The package is stilled unpacked
f: Failed-cfg- Failed to remove configuration files
h: Half-inst- The package is only partially installed
W: trig-aWait
t: Trig-pend

Third Character:

R: Reinst-required The package must be installed.

This was taken from here.
