Maybe the easiest way to see all packages is to go to synaptic and look what packages are with green mark.All marked packages are installed,but see some only part of programs.
You can see information when klick file you want.
Right buttom of mouse show for you what can do and choose .Don't remove packages what you don't know,it can cause problems use mint.
It's better use own packages of linux distro,so use them from synaptic ,or from package manger.They are the same in both.
I hope this help you.
