HI @aharrison24
Thanks for this contribution!

It seems that the tests are not passing. One test failure is obvious, it is checking the command generated, and should be easy to fix. The other one, I don't know without running. Please check them.

Also, it would be necessary to check the CLA, for some reason it is not ok. Typically this happen when the commits are done with an email different to the github one. It can be fixed following the link in the CLAassistant section above.

Previous check would return true if a package was installed in
the past, but subsequently removed.

@memsharded Sorry for my schoolboy errors! I think everything should be fixed now.

Do you need a changelog PR to be raised now as well? I wasn't sure what version number to put it under. 1.4.5?

I have solved the conflict from latest changes, to prepare this to be merged for next release.

It is a bit annoying that it is necessary such a command for getting this info about installation of a package. I have also had a look, and even most tutorials doesn't explain this behavior. I hope this doesn't break, for example, if the tools are localized, and the output message is not "ok installed".

Sorry for the delay in handling this, btw, I missed the notification about the update for the broken tests.

Yes, it does feel fragile to look for the "ok installed" message in the output. I've searched around a bit, but haven't been able to find a more robust solution. All of the options seem to rely on grepping for English words like "install".

It might be safer to stick with the existing solution rather than merging this PR. At least the existing solution does the right thing in most cases, and behaves identically under different locales. The solution proposed in this PR could break entirely on systems that don't output that "ok installed" message in English.

What is this ${Status} about?

@aharrison24 aharrison24 Sep 14, 2018

It's part of a format string which is passed to dpkg-query.

-f is the short form of the --showformat command:

Probably I'm dumb but where is the string passed to format the ${Status}

Contributor Author

@aharrison24 aharrison24 Sep 17, 2018

There's no string substitution or formatting happening in python. The '${Status}' string gets passed directly to the dpkg-query command. At the command line you would use something like:

dpkg-query -W -f='${Status}' libudev-dev | grep -q "ok installed"

I'm wondering whether a more portable test would be something like:

dpkg -l <package-name> 2>/dev/null | grep -q ^ii

Sorry for the confusion, I was trying to run it in a docker container but wrote up the command incorrectly. I think dpkg-query -W -f='${Status}' libudev-dev | grep -q "ok installed" is working well.

Note: I confirmed that in a linux with different locale the message is still the same:
