on our N900 we have
Code:
dpkg-deb -e "file.deb"
to extract the control file from a debian file if you have this cmd on your N9 then you can
get an example control file from any deb for N9

Good luck

Save it as "make-deb" and execute "make-deb /home/user/foopackage" to create /home/user/The-Amazing-Foo_0.1.deb

It makes digsigsums and md5sums files needed for aegis and packages all files to package_version.deb, fetching package name and version number from control file.

It requires binutils for ar packaging, and harmattan packages have to be created on harmattan due to ar differencies.
Using these instructions from Zas, Im very close.

Only problem is I cannot make folder in /home/user/ and I cannot set chmod +x to package script.

Is it true also for others, or I've kicked it there myself, and forget about doing so?

Oh,
yes that is true. Did not dig deep enough into folder symlinking, so was not aware of optified icons folder. Nice. And thanks for pointing me.

So it is not really a big mess/problem/memory-consumption for my use case.
BUT, nevertheless I would like to know if there is another possibility to use other package's files within my own package?
Or do we have to clone each stuff?

Im trying this on N9, but I cannot make DIR in /home/user/. No matter what I do I get "permission denied" error.

E: Trying it with files in MyDocs gives permission denied when running script.

Including exactly what you put in the control file?
The topic "Compiling & packaging on MeeGo Harmattan device" lists some ways to compile and/or package on device for MeeGo Harmattan.

To package on device : use Harmattan SDK image chrooted or PyPackager.

See many control files (for Harmattan SDK use) or make.py (for PyPackager use) in the source code of softwares in the Harmattan GitHub repository.

I packaged a theme and it installs without problems in its own folder, ok thats done. But i want To know for ex. I modify some file in the base folder, but when i uninstall (the theme) i want that the base folder go back to previous state, i mean that if any file was edited or deleted in the deb installing process when uninstall restore all that.
How can i tell meego that remember that when someone uninstall restore those files previous state?

I believe you cant do that, unless you made a backup of the base folder and restore it manually after installing... ( i think it is possible with a script to restore the backup after uninstalling ).

lol ! you are not editing a text file [ctrl + z] is not allowed
