Hello,
I want to make a Debian package of U++ for the Ubuntu software page getdeb.net.
(https://bugs.launchpad.net/getdeb.net/+bug/456359)

As I see your linux_scripts/uppdeb script is not quite the proper way how
to make a Debian package Smile

And it seems to me that you do not use a build system. And I did not find
compilation instructions.

So please can you help me compile the sources and make a Debian package ?

The uppdeb (and other) scripts in linux_scripts contains all you need to compile upp... Feel free to patch them if you find something not correct.

I hope this is not a serious comment Smile
The debhelper scripts really do a great job creating a package and there is no need to reimplement them. The first command when trying to create a Debian package should always be dh_make.
I can send you the diff.gz if I succeed to create a Debian package.

Is it true that at first I need an already installed U++ to be able to compile U++ from source ?

I really would appreciate if we could get a proper Debian being set up as I also have to write in C/C++ in this semester and Eclipse's performance just sucks Twisted Evil

Yep, I was serious Smile
I'm not an expert on Debian packages, the scripts I made were just to have some quick builds which works.
I don't know much about debhelper scripts, but if you find that UPP packages are not correctly built somehow, you can send the
needed patches, we'll be happy to apply them.
Anyways, I don't understand what may be wrong on upp packages... they look like debians ones, works correctly... I hope it's not
just a matter of "we should use debhelper because debian do".

Well, yes and not. With my scripts you DO need upp installed in order to build upp.... not a great problem to keep it updated, nor to build, just install an old deb and you're done.
Anyways, there's an option to export makefile from project, but I never used it... maybe somebody else can tell you if/how does it work. You'll need anyways upp sources in order to build UPP, so I don't see the point of using a makefile.
