I want to View/Install/Uninstall the System's Default Packages separately like Device Manager in Windows.

I wanna list the Systems's Default Packages too.

Is there anything available regarding to that?

How to know the file that belongs to System default file.

  • What does the Device Manager have to do with packages? O.o Checkout Synaptic, which might be what you want.

From what you describe in your question I think you're looking for three tools hardinfo, synaptic, and galternatives.

hardinfo allows you to see all your hardware and even do a few benchmarks.

Install via the software center sudo apt-get install hardinfo

synaptic gives you a list of software, that can be searched, and sorted by category. It also allows you to install/uninstall and manage software.

Install via the software center sudo apt-get install synaptic

galternatives allows you manage and select the default package to provide a specific service, such as specifying the default version of java to be used.

Install via the software center sudo apt-get install galternatives
