Dear Friends,
I have created a deb file for an application . But found some bugs in source code and updated . My problem comes in updating the previous deb with old one..
The old deb and related files can be downloaded here : https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxE7wbgixC4GTEdBYVBtS1NfREU/view?usp=sharing

The new bug fixed source code can found here : http://bit.ly/1QX9DuC

Waiting for a solution,

Thanks
Anes

Hi Anes,

How do you update a package with an older version? This seems to me to be a contradiction of terms. Would you please clarify what you are doing?

Some additional information about what problems you are having exactly with creating a deb package would be helpful. What error messages are you getting (if any) when attempting to build the updated package, or, when attempting to install it?

Thanks,
Monsie
