I'm trying to create a .deb for a python-based IRC bot. I've already gone through the Ubuntu Packaging Guide, and done a
debuild -S on it to create the source package.
When its uploaded to the PPA, it fails to include the code for the bot (which is necessary for the bot to run). How do I make the .deb so that it (a) isnt a source package, and (b) includes the code for the bot so that it can be run?
And by "includes the code for the bot so that it can be run", I mean so that the .deb extracts the code to the location in the virtual file structure that I specified so that it can be used by any user. Note that because its a python bot, there's no single executable file in the code, which explains the need for the source to be packaged and extracted with the .deb
