Re: .deb issue

Thanks for answering me Pierre. I have read the hd_installmenu manpage and I have applied it typing only dh_installmenu -v. The output of this command was this:

        install -p -m644 debian/menu debian/lkmonitor/usr/share/menu/lkmonitor
        echo "# Automatically added by dh_installmenu">> debian/lkmonitor.postinst.debhelper
        sed "" /usr/share/debhelper/autoscripts/postinst-menu >> debian/lkmonitor.postinst.debhelper
        echo '# End automatically added section' >> debian/lkmonitor.postinst.debhelper
        echo "# Automatically added by dh_installmenu">> debian/lkmonitor.postrm.debhelper
        sed "" /usr/share/debhelper/autoscripts/postrm-menu >> debian/lkmonitor.postrm.debhelper
        echo '# End automatically added section' >> debian/lkmonitor.postrm.debhelper

so, I tried to do a dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot another time and when the process had finished I installed the .deb package but all goes in the same way about the menus. I am going to post it in debian-mentors as you suggested me, but if you or somebody here can tell me something more about my problem I will be grateful because I have not found a lot of documentation to fix my specific problem.

Thanks another time.

  Use dh_installmenu that would take care of that. Also I'd say that
debian-mentors is a better list for this kind of questions. Cheers,
