How to Write Correct copyright File?

Postby Malsasa on Wed Feb 20, 2013 11:59 am

Hello, maybe it is not really sufficient but is is still related with Mint/Debian/Ubuntu...

I wanna my copyright file inside debian/usr/share/doc/myapp/ become correct and Software Center (Ubuntu Software Center) detect my DEB as Open Source. I've followed what Debian Packaging Pages here and as addition, Lintian doesn't say any ERROR or WARNING about my copyright file. But Software Center says unknown at License field when open my DEB. Okay, I am packaging a JAR file based on a tutorial: http://blog.noizeramp.com/2005/08/31/pa ... r-debians/.

Okay, I have done these:
1) copypaste another DEB's copyright file (I choose only no lintian error DEBs)
2) copypaste Debian Packaging Guide in copyright section examples (more than once)
3) edit them and accomplish the content

*I have asked in #ubuntu, #debian, #ubuntu-devel, ubuntuforums.org, #ubuntu-indonesia, but still no support at all so I asked here*

Problem:
Software Center doesn't detect my copyright when I open my DEB.

Question:
How to write correct copyright file? I need some exact example.
