I thought about doing that, but wouldn't that cause uninstall to fail when it can't find the file?

hello

the issue I have with py2deb is not with the post/preinstall script, but with the package section.. I have a desktop widget for diablo in extras-devel that I am trying to promote..

while packaging with py2deb, I tried the below which resulted in errors that the 'user/desktop' section does not exist..
Code:
p.section="user/desktop"
So I ended up using
Code:
p.section="user/accessories"
With this I could succesfully upload to extras-devel.. However when I try to promote it to extras, I get a msg that
Warning: This package is not using one of the allowed user/* sections!
Could some one pls tell me how I can select the right section here and I think the right section here would be "user/desktop"

Thank you krk969

I did refer to this section classification. But the issue was that py2deb would not allow me to use "user/desktop", so I resorted to using "user/accessories". Using accessories section resulted in a warning msg in the packages interface.

I managed to find a work around by editing the py2deb.py file to include the "user/desktop" section. but I still have some issues in the packages interface as mentioned here

Thanks anyways for your time
