>> dpkg -l | grep <pkg name> ?
simple and nice command .
it gives detailed about only installed packages.
for non-installed package , it will return nothing.
> aptitude search <package name>
> If the first column is 'i', it means the package is installed.
it gives very elaborate output for both installed and non-installed packages.
both commands are powerful.
thanks to all. ! .
