Building the Package

Now, with the files in place it is possible to actually build the package. Move into the ubuntu-golden folder and issue the command

This will build and sign the deb. We run the debuild command because our theme is a brand new package with no existing version in Ubuntu's repositories and so dput (covered later) will upload the .orig.tar.gz file to the PPA.

For more information about debuild and PPAs, look at https://help.launchpad.net/ Packaging/PPA.
