View Full Version : How do I change permission for a file in debian/rules

How do I change permission for a file in debian/rules so I do not run into this problem when compiling the program?
I am building this program in the ubuntu PPA jail.

test -z "/usr/lib/gimp/2.0/python" || /bin/mkdir -p "/build/buildd/gimp-2.7.2/debian/tmp//usr/lib/gimp/2.0/python"
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 /build/buildd/gimp-2.7.2/./plug-ins/pygimp/gimpenums.py /build/buildd/gimp-2.7.2/./plug-ins/pygimp/gimpfu.py /build/buildd/gimp-2.7.2/./plug-ins/pygimp/gimpplugin.py /build/buildd/gimp-2.7.2/./plug-ins/pygimp/gimpshelf.py /build/buildd/gimp-2.7.2/./plug-ins/pygimp/gimpui.py '/build/buildd/gimp-2.7.2/debian/tmp//usr/lib/gimp/2.0/python'
/bin/bash: line 18: /build/buildd/gimp-2.7.2/./py-compile: Permission denied

The Debian/rules file for this build

#!/usr/bin/make -f
# PLEASE NOTE: when building a development version or a version where the minor
# library version changes or has changed but the major so version stays the
# same, make sure to Build-Conflict on libgimpX.X, Where libgimpX.X contains
# a previous version of the same major version of the library. Otherwise,
# libtool will stupidly relink against the system version of the library
# when installing, and create a dependency on the old version of libgimp.
# TODO: maybe set LD_LIBRARY_PATH instead?

## WARNING: compiling without -O2 (DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=noopt) may produce
