Updating the package

To update the package the first you need to do is to set up your build environment. After that there are two ways: an automated way (which is highly preferred) and a manual way.

Setting up the build environment

Run sudo apt install build-dep debhelper.

It is also necessary to setup Git with your username and email address as explained in numerous tutorials.

The automated way

Run ./ "$new-version"

Where $new-version is in the format [year].[major].[minor].

The manual way

To update the version follow these steps. Replace all instances of [year].[major].[minor] with the new version numbers (e.g., 2017.3++).

  1. Fork the repo
  2. Create your own feature branch
git checkout -b version-[year].[major].[minor]
  1. Rename the following
mv intellij-idea-community_2017.3 intellij-idea-community_[year].[major].[minor]
mv intellij-idea-community_2017.3.orig.tar.gz intellij-idea-community_[year].[major].[minor].orig.tar.gz
  1. Edit the and update the version numbers

  2. Go into the build files directory

cd intellij-idea-community_[year].[major].[minor]/debian
  1. Edit the changelog file and prepend a new changelog entry. You can just copy an old one and update the values in it

  2. Edit the preinst file and update the download url. Normally this is done by updating the version number

  3. Go one directory back

cd ..
  1. Run the following command to build the package for testing purposes
debuild -us -uc
  1. Go another directory back
cd ..
  1. Remove the old files
rm intellij-idea-community_2017.3-1*
  1. Install the package to test it
sudo dpkg -i intellij-idea-community_[year].[major].[minor]_all.deb
  1. If everything works, add yourself to the CONTRIBUTORS.txt

  2. Commit your changes

git add -A
git commit -m "Version [year].[major].[minor]"
  1. Push to the branch
git push origin version-[year].[major].[minor]
  1. Create new pull request
