Make DEB Package Subject description: 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...
