Hi,

I am trying to create a .deb package for a game I have made.

I have been following this guide

http://developer.ubuntu.com/2012/02/how-to-prepare-a-compiled-application-for-ubuntu-software-center/

I have successfully created the .deb file it appears to install correctly when run with the dpkg -i woop.deb command. (binary file and loadscript in /opt/ninjah, /usr/share/applications/ninjah.desktop present, /usr/share/icons/ninjah.png present)

However, after that the game doesn't appear in the gnome / unity-dash menu and I even can't run it via a terminal (unless I am in the /opt/ninjah/ directory and run ./runninjah).

I'm sure I have missed something, but I can't see what!

Any ideas? :)
