Yes, am done with my first deb creation! All it took was a simple control file to be under the directory containing all your files needed for installation and a simple command: dpkg -b . first_all_0.1.deb.
Somehow, first_all_0.1.deb comes up as a hidden file. Need to read more.
But, am feeling good.
p.s: first_all_0.1.deb is not the actual name of the deb I made ;-)
