I've yet to tackle that myself, but probably you'll need this: http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/maint-guide/. Perhaps find a similar package, download it and right-click it to open it with Archive Manager so you can extract the files it contains. So you can have an example from which you can work.

I have published this theme at https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/issues/1759 for now until I get around it :D :D

Looks good!

I second to download a similar package:
http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?suite=all&section=all&arch=any&keywords=plymouth&searchon=names
You can also browse the files online at launchpad. Ex.
https://code.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-branches/ubuntu/raring/lubuntu-artwork/raring
http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-branches/ubuntu/raring/lubuntu-artwork/raring/files

It was a while since I packaged anything but I think this was one of the tutorials I followed.
http://www.webupd8.org/2010/01/how-to-create-deb-package-ubuntu-debian.html
The Debian New Maintainers Guide is off course all "good stuff" but maybe a little too much for a first time packager. :wink:
