Finger friendly matchbox theme, now as a Debian package

Filed under: Embedded — talpadk @ 11:23 am


YouTube video of the theme


Edit: The package is apt-get able from the official  pkg-fso.alioth.debian.org

The package is not include in the official  pkg-fso.alioth.debian.org repository yet, but you can download the files HERE.

I still need to figure out if is okay that the changes file is labeled as i386 or what I need to do differently.
But at least it passes “lintian -i -I –show-overrides –pedantic matchbox-theme-finger-friendly_7svn_i386.changes” without any problems.



  1. The package is now available in the pkg-fso repository: http://pkg-fso.nomeata.de/sid/allpackages (direct link to files http://pkg-fso.alioth.debian.org/debian/pool/main/m/matchbox-theme-finger-friendly/).

  2. here’s some feedback on matchbox-theme-finger-friendly 7svn. I sent this also by email.

    1) “7svn” is a very odd version number. Is this trying to be revision
    7 in some svn branch?

    2) debian/control does not end with a newline

    3) You could simplify your debian/rules a lot. Just using

    #!/usr/bin/make -f
    dh $@

    works with debhelper in debian squeeze.

    Afaik having “i386” in the name of the changes file is just normal.
