I made a program using Qt Creator, and I made a package (.deb) using Debreate. Now I want to know how to upload this on PPA. I already created PPA on launchpad.

Did "Debreate" create the .deb itself? Or did it just create the source package (the files and tarballs needed to build the binary .deb installer) –  Thomas W. Jul 2 '12 at 18:31
    
Debreate only took files which I've selected and it just made .deb out of them. Inside of a .deb package I can see three files: control.tar.gz ; data.tar.gz ; debian-binary Is that ok? –  Alen Jul 2 '12 at 20:08
    
nope, that's not a source package. –  Thomas W. Jul 2 '12 at 22:56
    
then how to create source package for Qt app –  Alen Jul 3 '12 at 7:34

If you have a source package run

dput ppa:your/ppa  yourpackage_0.1_source.changes

Replace your/ppa and yourpackage_0.1 with your real data.

Does Debreate create the source package? i'm not certain it does, hence my comment to the OP –  Thomas W. Jul 2 '12 at 18:50
    
how to create that source file, and how does it looks like, maybe I have it but don't know if that's it :)) –  Alen Jul 2 '12 at 20:54
    
You need to have yourpackage_0.1_source.changes, yourpackage_0.1.dsc and yourpackage_0.1.tar.gz or a similar file containing the actual sources. See developer.ubuntu.com/packaging/html and help.launchpad.net/Packaging/PPA/Uploading for some more information. –  Florian Diesch Jul 2 '12 at 21:04
