The source tree contains a
debian directory. It contains the
control file and other files for packaging. Copy the
Socializer binary and Qt libs and plugins to
debian/opt/Socializer directory. After all, build the package by issuing command
fakeroot dpkg-deb --build debian. The package will be built in the name
