Show all deb packages with the name “httpd”
dpkg -l | grep httpd
Another useful trick someone showed me recently is “dpkg -L xxx.” It will show all of the files installed by package xxx.
My vote goes to dlocate(1)
oy! (/me knocks his skull)
aptitude search ~n
aptitude search ~nhttpd
But if you want to search something in BOTH package name as well as its description
aptitude search ~n~dhttpd
