I would like to know which stock gnome apps are not included in Ubuntu 18.04. Thanks.

    What do you consider to be "stock" GNOME apps? – muru Jun 14 '18 at 9:01
  • I'm referring to those apps that are part of the vanilla gnome shell. – Nikos Lagios Jun 14 '18 at 9:04

    The vanilla GNOME Shell is ... just the shell. – muru Jun 14 '18 at 9:05
  • OK, so apps like Evolution, Gnome Weather or Gnome Music are not part of a core Gnome Package. – Nikos Lagios Jun 14 '18 at 9:12

    Is there a definitive list of "core"/"stock" GNOME apps? If you can provide a list, then I believe others will be able to tell which ones are included and which ones are not. I found this one , but I'm not sure how up-to-date or correct it is. – pomsky Jun 14 '18 at 9:46

If you clean up the list of depends, you can run apt policy on the list and pipe the output to grep to figure what's missing on your system:

apt policy adwaita-icon-theme  at-spi2-core baobab caribou chromium chromium-browser dconf-cli dconf-gsettings-backend eog evince evolution-data-server firefox firefox-esr fonts-cantarell gdm3 gedit gkbd-capplet glib-networking gnome-backgrounds gnome-bluetooth gnome-calculator gnome-characters gnome-contacts gnome-control-center gnome-disk-utility gnome-font-viewer gnome-keyring gnome-logs gnome-menus gnome-online-accounts gnome-online-miners gnome-session gnome-settings-daemon gnome-shell gnome-shell-extensions gnome-software gnome-sushi gnome-system-monitor gnome-terminal gnome-themes-extra gnome-user-docs gnome-user-share gsettings-desktop-schemas gstreamer1.0-packagekit gstreamer1.0-plugins-base gstreamer1.0-plugins-good gstreamer1.0-pulseaudio gvfs-backends gvfs-bin gvfs-fuse libatk-adaptor libcanberra-pulse libpam-gnome-keyring libproxy1-plugin-gsettings nautilus pulseaudio sound-theme-freedesktop system-config-printer-common system-config-printer-udev totem tracker yelp zenity  | grep -B1 Installed

Here's a partial output on my system (which is Kubuntu 18.04):

In a comment to this answer, muru has mentioned the fact that some applications are installed as snaps, at least in 18.04. There's also a mention of snaps being installed by default in Why have Canonical installed core Gnome apps as Snaps by default?.

In the case of the snaps listed in the question linked to above, four of them are also listed in the output of apt show gnome-core. Two, gnome-3-26-1604 and gtk-common-themes aren't.

Anyway, snaps installed on the system can be seen by running snap list according to https://tutorials.ubuntu.com/tutorial/basic-snap-usage#2.
