Create Ubuntu packages (deb)

GiftWrap is made for the artist who wants to share their theme, the developer who wants to share their software, or the common user who wants to install from packages and not source code.

It helps you in creating Ubuntu .deb packages by guiding through the process with minimal fuss and maximum automation. GiftWrap also aims to help you in creating high-quality packages by helping you fill in as most of the package meta-information as possible - either by automatically detecting or explaining the options in an easy to understand manner.

 * Creation of basic packages from source archives or folders
 * Creation of debian package rules - so maintainer name, email, description, build-depends, recomments & etc. fields
 * Automatic building of packages - so at the end of the process you get an installable .deb that you can share with others (along with a .changes & .orig.tar.gz file for uploading to a PPA)

Copy/paste the following into the terminal to quickly install:

echo deb `lsb_release -cs` main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ppa.list
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver 207CAD03
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install giftwrap

Deb Creator* looks similar. Not sure which one came first.
