Okay,So I have wasted my whole day and still unable to figure out how to do that the easy way.I have been to the debian land and ubuntu packaging land.I have read about equivs and various other ways but still no progress.Those are all bulky pieces of texts.Is creating a .deb to do such a small/easy thing is that much difficult in Ubuntu/debian?
