There has been this software last semester, but now i can't find it. What happend?

Not all licenses for software are renewed automaticlly each semester. If there are apparently no requests for a specified software, it will not be renewed anymore. If you want to make sure, that a specific software is available next semester, you can write us an email to following address: problems@cip.cs.fau.de

How can I get a list of software packages, which are installed on the Unix systems?

There are two commands: lslocal shows the available programms in /local and dpkg --get-selections shows the packages, which are installed on Debian. To find a specific Debian-package, use grep-available -P <package>. There you also can see the status, thus if it is installed or not.
