Hi forum,
I've developed an RPG in C++ with SDL, and am now wondering how to distribute it (free of course ;D) I like the idea of getting another cool game on the software centre but am stumped where to start. I'm guessing i need to make a .deb and upload it to the repos, but if someone could give me some advice or point me to a webpage with information I would be greatful ;-)
Live long and prosper!

this site should tell you everything you need http://developer.ubuntu.com/

in a nutshell:

if you now how, create a deb, upload it to a ppa and submit it to the ubuntu devs for verification. They will check it an see if the package complies with the standards and will help you to fix problems (if there are any)
