How can I get in Ubuntu 14.04 a list of every program I have installed with its size but with chronological order? Is there a way?

It is important to mention that I have found a lot of similar questions in here and they were not helpful.

This command will show you the list of installed software in chronological order.

ls -l --time=ctime --time-style=long-iso /usr/share/applications|sort -r -k6|grep "\.desktop"|sed s/'\.desktop.*'//g|awk '{print $6" "$7" "$8}'

The output will be like

As far as size of software is concerned, it is difficult to say what the size of software will be, as the files are spread in many places and are many times shared between softwares.
