Ubuntu Packaging 101

OK, I have no idea if I did this 100% correctly or not, but in the end...it worked :) I set out to create an "official" Ubuntu PPA Package for gvndialer. I wanted to this for a few reasons.

First, I wanted to have the application easily accessible to myself and other users that use this helpful application. Second, I wanted to see how easy it was to create an Ubuntu package. True, I've done something similar with MY other application pyconnmgr, however that was a Python "script" and things were a little different for that. This was a chance to package up a 3rd party developed application, and get it into an "official" Ubuntu PPA location.

I documented the entire process here: http://www.thelupine.com/node/283
