In Linux it is possible to create a list of installed software that you can later use to re-download the software should you have to reinstall your operating system. I have made this process even easier by writing three scripts for backing up and restoring installed software in Ubuntu, Sabayon, and Fedora.

Fedora

Ubuntu

Sabayon

To use the scripts, open Terminal and login as root or super user and then run the script.

On Fedora: su sh fedora_backup_and_restore.sh

On Ubuntu: sudo bash ubuntu_backup_and_restore.sh

On Sabayon: su sh sabayon_backup_and_restore.sh
