Newer grub packages now provide to add files with own modifications at /etc/default/grub.d/ . In my case I was able to modify grub with my packaging by: thopiekar@t91:~$ cat /etc/default/grub.d/emgd.cfg GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="$GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT vmalloc=256MB selinux=0 vga=current" Thank you all anyway :)

You are missing the dependencies required to build your app, in the Build-Depends section of the debian/control file. Also, you should use sbuild or pbuilder to test local builds of your package, before uploading to a PPA on Launchpad, to ensure the package will build.
