Is there a way to disable or hide paid apps from Ubuntu Software Center (Ubuntu 11.10)? Or a way to permanently filter apps by licence: open source / closed but free / paid?

Also if you click on the more info button on any application it tells you the price, the license and any other info you are likely to need. I know it's not exactly filtering but it should help you make decisions on whether to install or not.

Yes. In the toolbar, where it says "All programs", you can click the arrow and select "From Ubuntu" instead.

Thanks, but that's only a partial solution. Doing as You suggest hides the category sidebar (i.e. cripples functionality) and works only for current session - it's not remembered when the Software Center is started next time. –  arunas Dec 6 '11 at 12:53
