    what apps are there???


    Ive got SuSE 8.2 and when I installed it I installed almost every package on the list. I want to know if there is a command I can run on the command line to list all the programs I can run. Ive used kappfinder and got ~70 programs on my menu but Im shure there are more programs installed than that. Any ideas?
