If you check the ppa page, you'll notice that there's no package version available for trusty (14.04): But you can install the terminator package from the Ubuntu universe repository: sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) universe" sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install terminator

You could create a post installation script: gedit debian/*packagename*.postinst This is just a normal script, so the following instructions will do: #!/bin/sh set -e chmod 755 /path/to/pythonscript.py exit 0 Alternatively, you could exclude the file from having its permissions altered by dh_fixperms. This can be done within debian/rules: %: dh ...

To do this kind of thing you would normally just modify the source package locally in the way that you desire, tweak its version and/or name, and upload that to your PPA. You can achieve the environment variable change by setting it in debian/rules. The documentation tree at https://help.launchpad.net/Packaging/PPA answers a number of common questions in ...

As the earlier poster said, you have to use the PPA ppa:n-muench/burg . As for installing super-boot-manager on 14.04, it is still at the time of writing not updated in the ppa for 14.04. I followed the guide in THIS TUTORIAL to bypass that. Use: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ingalex/super-boot-manager sudo sh -c "sed -i 's/trusty/raring/g' ...

The ppa does not provide packages for trusty. Take a look at your url http://ppa.launchpad.net/upubuntu-com/multimedia/ubuntu/dists/ To hide/resolve the error, you should remove the ppa from Software Sources. I recommend using Y PPA Manager, it is handy. If you need to install the packages provided by the ppa for trusty, you can check to see whether you ...

Your package needs the package libgoogle-collections-java as a dependency, but you do not have a repository which provides this package. It seems that it was available in 10.04 and 12.04, but not in 14.04 for reasons that are unclear... You need to find this package in order to install Gephi.

You made a little mistake in your debian/control file where you assumed that the python2.7 package provides the interpreter. /usr/bin/python is actually provided by python-minimal. That's why the following lines in your Makefile don't work as expected in the build environment: PYVER := $(shell python -c "import sys; print sys.version[0:3]") CFLAGS := -g ...

This is pure speculation, but your compile command is: gcc -g -I/usr/include/python -Wall -Werror -fPIC -fno-strict-aliasing -DUSESELINUX=1 -c -o dm.o dm.c However, libpython2.7-dev install files in /usr/include/python2.7, according to the file list. Perhaps you should consider different compile flags. There might be something in your system ...

There is an unofficial PPA from Paolo Ratolo (Italian teenager from Numix team). Here is how you can do it: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:paolorotolo/android-studio sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install android-studio Source: http://itsfoss.com/install-android-studio-ubuntu-linux/

Even if it's not really recommended to remove silently a package in /usr/local you could do it in a debian/bamliquidatorbatch.preinst script: #!/bin/sh set -e if [ -d "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/bamliquidatorbatch" ]; then pip uninstall -y BamLiquidatorBatch; fi Note that bamliquidatorbatch should be the exact name of your debian binary ...

If you are trying to remove files in preinst, you should actually redesign your entire installer to overwrite, and remove only files that're gone. By default, apt-get and dpkg will overwrite any files that have a matching filename, and overwrite. If you are still dealing with old files on the target system, then the package is weird. Ultimately, if you ...

From the jfi/ppastats package, I managed to figure out how the API worked, and I made a userscript (Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey), that will neatly list the download count next to your packages. Make sure to go to the "View all builds" view, to which there is two links added in your package details. Patches for improvements are welcome!

The first step you want to master is how to: Package New Software. That is taking either your compiled executables or your icon theme and turning them into a .deb package that apt-get can use. Once you have your icons in a .deb file then see the PPA link in that same page.
