View Full Version : My first .deb :) fusion-icon

July 17th, 2007, 02:36 AM
I have always wanted to learn how to make a .deb file, and I finally found a great tutorial on the forums. Anyways, I tested my skills out on fusion-icon, which is like beryl-manager only for compiz-fusion. I have posted up the i386 .deb, so please tell me if it works, and what I could have done to make it better...

Critique as much as you like. I want to learn

right away I noticed there is no description for the package, looks good but there is something wrong. When I install the package and run fusion-icon, the image for for the icon in the notification area, is missing. Attached is an image of my task bar, you can check for yourself. (I have hilighted the area in question)

i'm a noob, so do you have any ideas on how I would fix either of those problems

weird cause on my comp it works perfectly, but yah the description is missing

I could be mistaken, but I believe the icon files should be going into /usr/share/pixmaps/ But I could be wrong.

also can I ask which tutorial you used to make your deb?
