Where are the MATE source deb packages?

Postby jasmineaura on Wed Oct 17, 2012 3:33 am

I just fixed a (aesthetic) bug in mate-user-share and submitted for pull upstream, and now I want to fix locally, and so I need to rebuild the deb package.
However:
$ apt-get source mate-user-share
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to find a source package for mate-user-share


From looking at a old bug from 2011 at bugs.launchpad.com/linuxmint , I found a reference to https://github.com/linuxmint/Mate-Packages/ and thought this is where I'd find source, but unfortunately that repo is no longer.

Where can I find the MATE source deb packages?

Hmm, looks like some source packages are missing from packages.linuxmint.com. There's the official MATE repo though (as described here).
I've added
Code: Select all
deb-src http://packages.mate-desktop.org/repo/debian wheezy main
to my sources list and found out that mate-user-share source is available there.
