Jessie Repository List?

I was just wondering if there is a Jessie Repository List anywhere on the web. A Google search amounted to nothing.
This would be handy now the Pi Store has closed and for finding software that isn't mentioned on the forum or listed in MagPi.

A package manager can also be used to search for available programs as well as show you what is already installed on your RPi.
The Aptitude PM is already installed in Raspbian.

Code: Select all

sudo aptitude
I prefer Synaptic (GUI program) but it must be installed:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install synaptic
Note: Start synaptic from a LXterminal prompt and NOT from the GUI menu.

Code: Select all

sudo synaptic

Hello,

Follow this and you can run Synaptic from the menu.

Thanks for the tip. I've downloaded it but I'll play around with it after work tomorrow night. In-between playing with the sense hat.
