Is there a GUI for packaging and uploading a file to the Ubuntu repository?

No command-line stuff with the setup.


Yes, there is GUI for packaging. You can find some in this old answer: Graphical tool for creating Deb packages

But to upload to Launchpad, no.

Anyway, it's easy and you can do with a simple command.

The only caveat: first time only, you need to create SSH keys, register at Launchpad, etc: http://packaging.ubuntu.com/html/getting-set-up.html

Then, after create your Launchpad repo, no GUI is required, really simple:

dput ppa:<launchpad_user>/<repo> <package>_source.changes
  • Just one additional note: you'll upload to Launchpad not the .deb file, but the .changes one. – Rael Gugelmin Cunha Dec 30 '14 at 20:11
