Hi,

I know this may be a dumb-newbie question but does anyone know if a conversion .bin into .deb packages is possible?:confused:

Use these two commands in terminal:

chmod +x {downloaded_file_name}.bin

fakeroot make-jpkg {downloaded_file_name}.bin

The first line gives the .bin file execution privileage. The second line converts .bin into .deb, a Debian version of the installation package.

Errr... that only works for java bin packages. The short answer is it's not generally possible.

Oh, I didn't know that, sorry. Thanks for pointing out my mistake.
