PostPosted: Fri 16 May 2014, 02:24    Post_subject:  Make DEB Package
Sub_title: Create .deb Packages from a Directory by Right-Click-Action


Coming from this Request and got some links provided by semme.

I intended to build a .deb package to install some of the GIMP PlugIns from my LP2_Gimp-PlugIns-2.8.sfs into Mint 16 Petra/Cinnamon installed on my girlfriend's computer. By the solutions and instructions found through the links provided by semme, I have build a right-click tool to create .deb packages from a directory.

Here it is: MakeDeb-0.0.3


- Needs to have dpkg-deb installed
- Directory Names like: My-DebPackage_1.0 or my-debpackage_1.0
Note the Directories Name's green underscores (_)

Do not use Names like: my_debpackage_1.0
Note the Directories Name's red underscore (_)

The underscore (_) must be used only after the complete name (without the version number) and right before the version number - like: my-debpackage_1.0.

This tool -when used the 1st time on a directory- creates the directory 'DEBIAN' and also the needed file 'control' - already filled up with some default data. This file 'control' is then loaded into a small GUI to be edited manually - some parts are already automatically re-filled before building the .deb package.

When using it the 2nd time on equal directory, it builds the .deb package immediately without to show the GUI again - since the file 'control' is already existing.

Note: It does NOT create the postinstall script as well as the script to uninstall the .deb package!
This would be stuff for some improvements...

Thank you, RSH!

Fred made some small modifications to addopt it for DebianDog as right click option. We will include it in the next versions.
