Building under Debian

  • Hi Brian,

    Thanks for the tools! I'm having trouble building this under Debian. That is to say, it builds fine, but the package doesn't get created properly. Neither checkinstall nor fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage manage to create a package that actually contains the tools. I can copy the individual executables manually and they work fine.

    Cheers,
    David

    David,

    Just in case you're checking this forum 14 months after you posted, I've just released the first Debian packages for littleutils-1.0.26.  They can be found in the littleutils-debian-i386 and littleutils-debian-amd64 folders under Files.  If you'd rather build your own packages, you can do so by renaming littleutils-1.0.26.tar.bz2 to littleutils_1.0.26.orig.tar.bz2, unpacking the tarball, changing to the littleutils-1.0.26 directory, and unpacking the littleutils_1.0.26-1.debian.tar.gz tarball found in the source directory.  This should enable you to run the dpkg-buildpackage command successfully.

    Brian, there is no package gs under debian 7 on which littleutils-imageutils package depends. Was it ghostscript?

    There is no debian.tar.gz file in sources also.

    Yep. Package "gs" should have been "ghostscript". Gzip-compressed version of debian tarball also provided. See new uploads.
