Description

I like to keep a list of installed packages on my workstations from time to time. With Arch Linux that mean I want to backup a list of both native packages and packages from the AUR.

Backup

  • Backup native applications:
    pacman -Qqen > backup-apps.txt
    
  • Backup AUR applications:
    pacman -Qqm > backup-aur-apps.txt
    

Restore

  • Restore native applications:
    cat backup-apps.txt | sudo pacman -S -
    
  • Restore AUR applications:
    cat backup-aur-apps.txt | yaourt -S -
