    Re: manipulation the deb package

    The best way to do that is to download the package's source tarball (i.e. not the upstream source tarball, but the one you get by using apt-get source), make your modfications and then rebuild the .deb. This is because direct manipulation of the .deb (which essentially is a .tar.gz) may render it useless.

    Look at the .deb packaging sticky for more information.
