Ubuntu: What does this info mean when I fire `dpkg -l lxpanel`?


When trying to see the version of LXPanel and fire dpkg -l lxpanel, I get

~$ dpkg -l lxpanel  Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold  | Status=Not/Inst/Conf-files/Unpacked/halF-conf/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend  |/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)  ||/ Name           Version      Architecture Description  +++-==============-============-============-=================================  ii  lxpanel        0.5.10+git20 i386         LXDE panel  

Are there some errors that have to be solved?


ii  lxpanel        0.5.10+git20 i386         LXDE panel  
  • Desired status: install (i)
  • Actual status: installed (i)
  • Error: (nothing)
  • Package name: lxpanel
  • Version: 0.5.10+git20
  • Architecture: i386
  • Description (short version): LXDE panel

Are there some errors that have to be solved?

No. Not about this package as far as the package management is concerned.


First dpkg -l does printing the package-name-pattern

dpkg -l package-name-pattern - List installed packages matching pattern. Practically speaking you have to use 'package-name-pattern' unless you know the fully exact name of the package.

you can get version name from dpkg -l also but That's not the usual way to get version of any package.Generally you can use -v or read its manpage for more information on how to get version name.

so for your case ,its lxpanel -v
