Over the past month I have had to reinstall the system a couple times. Luckily I had backed up using vorta (a gui for borg backup). I’ve managed to restore most of my stuff, but I find I still have to individually reinstall most packages like browser, vpn, various office programs. Most of these are through pacman but the odd one is from aur or flatpak.
I find this can be quite tedious although not the end of the world. But I was wondering if there is a way to backup these installed packages and avoid this hassle next time? Preferably just as a list to reference what has been installed
