Is there a way to build a package for Mint? (eq PPA)

Postby pecita on Fri Dec 16, 2011 11:23 pm

Hi.
I build a font that I packaged on a Ubuntu PPA: https://launchpad.net/~packager-pecita/ ... otf-pecita .
It is a font so do not have an architecture but Launchpad allow to build packages only for Ubuntu releases, so I needed to specify Oneiric, Natty, Maverick, etc.
I switched from Ubuntu to Debian Mint because of Unity but I want to retrieve my font!
Is it possible to build my font package for Debian Mint and then push it on a public repository, such PPA?
TY,
Philippe

For Debian, you need to create (and maintain) a repo.

the beauty of linux is that the rabbit hole goes as deep as you want it to go.

Well!
I looked and it's not really simple. I would have to become a Debian Maintainer and enter the temple of the Debian sect is an adventure. My main problem is to find a (good) advocate!
I will try. Thank you.

Hello.

Really I think that the PPA needs be available in Debian :shock:

However, I found the right link : http://mentors.debian.net/

if you've get used to ubuntu (with PPA support, etc), it's easier to use mint main edition instead of LMDE,

Thank you very much, Pecita. I quite fancy this font, with all the ligatures. Really good work. It works well with Gimp, Inkscape and LibreOffice, just tried it out.
