I'm looking into publishing a magazine on the Ubuntu Software Center, how would I go about doing that?

I notice there are a lot of them, but I'm not sure how it works. Thanks.

I do not know about magazines, but I published my app through the MyApps service. They will package your magazine, so you do not need to provide the debian package. I should take a look at the Ubuntu developer site.

After installing Full Circle Magazine #53 and launching it's icon from dash, Nautilus opened in /opt/fullcircle/issues and it contained fullcircle-issue53-eng.pdf.

The thing I know for sure is that your magazine must be in /opt.

Thanks for the tip. I already know how to do that, I'm just wondering how the specifics work. For example, I dont know if I can just supply a pdf or if I have to create an app to loead the pdf. – Razick Aug 11 '12 at 18:59
Install some magazine and look if it opens in Evince PDF Viewer or it has its own app. – Aleksandar Aug 12 '12 at 10:55
