Quick hacks

Every now and then I want to make a small change to an Ubuntu package I have installed on my system. This is how to do it.

sudo apt-get build-dep [package]
sudo apt-get souurce [package]
cd [package dir]
cd [source dir]
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -b

Now there should be a .deb file you can install in the parent directory.

This was culled from an answer by Alvin Row here.
