No.. it's not work on N9...
When I run this command:
Code:
dpkg-deb -b /path/to/package
I always get this:
Code:
tar: unrecognized option '--format=gnu'
BusyBox v1.19.0.git (MeeGo 3:1.19-8+0m6) multi-call binary.
Usage: tar -[cxtzjhmvO] [-X FILE] [-T FILE] [-f TARFILE] [-C DIR] [FILE]...
dpkg-deb: subprocess tar -cf returned error exit status 1

I havent tried any postinst and postrm files.. only control. my first few attempts at packaging worked. but now, doing it the same, they wont install.

Im thinking maybe theres a syntax error somewhere.

Heres my control file:
http://www.multiupload.com/4HNKC706KQ

If someone could take a look Id really appreciate it.

Try something...
1) this section:
Code:
XB-Maemo-Flags: visible 
XB-Maemo-Display-Name: Faster Darker Better Theme
change to this:
Code:
Maemo-Flags: visible 
Maemo-Display-Name: Faster Darker Better Theme
2) Giv the same name of your package in /home/user, like this:
Code:
/home/user/fdb-theme
3) try to change the "Maemo-Display-Name: Faster Darker Better Theme" to the shorter one like "Maemo-Display-Name: Faster Theme"

4) if 1+2+3 don't work, try to remove this line:
Code:
Installed-Size: 1200
5) if all this still don't work, tell me where your package will be installed and if this have copy something into MyDocs ?

This package doesnt install anything to MyDocs, but I have tried to packaged other things that install to MyDocs which also dont install and give same error as one above.

Thanks for your help.

Edit: I would also like to add postinstall and rm scripts if you could help me with that

You sure the tar version you're using is GNU?
If not, you can download this tar then:
Code:
cp /where/you/downloaded/that/tar /usr/bin/tar
