First we need to install these packages:
sudo apt-get install dh-make devscripts
Copy the script into an editor and save it as
chmod u+x hello mkdir hello-0.1 cp hello hello-0.1/ cd hello-0.1/ dh_make -s --indep --createorig grep -v makefile debian/rules > debian/rules.new mv debian/rules.new debian/rules echo hello usr/bin > debian/install echo "1.0" > debian/source/format rm debian/*.ex debuild -us -uc cd .. sudo dpkg -i hello_0.1-1_all.deb
hello into the Terminal prints 'Hello World'.
