Instructions on creating the Debian .deb package:

sudo apt-get install devscripts
sudo apt-get install dpkg-dev
sudo apt-get install fakeroot
sudo apt-get install debhelper
sudo apt-get install libgconf2-dev
  • check out the necessary version; for example, to build the .deb file for GRAMPS version 2.2.9, you'll want to run:
mkdir ~/gramps
cd ~/gramps
svn co https://gramps.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/gramps/tags/gramps-2.2.9
  • confirm that everything builds:
./autogen.sh
make
  • create the .deb package:
cd debian
export DEBEMAIL='[email protected]'
export DEBFULLNAME='Stephane Charette'
dch -v 2.2.9-1 "New upstream release"
cd ..
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
Remember to modify DEBEMAIL and DEBFULLNAME to reflect your e-mail and name.
  • release the .deb files:
cd ..
ls *.deb
Note the 2 files gramps_2.2.9-1_all.deb and gramps-help_2.2.9-1_all.deb, both of which need to be uploaded to ftp://upload.sourceforge.net/incoming/.
  • The details on how things are going to be packaged into deb files, what are the dependencies, the pre- and post- install and removal scripts etc are under debian/ directory. Please refer to the Debian New Maintainers' Guide for further details.
