Rebuild DEB files from source

root @ parrot: ~ # apt-get source <pack-name>

root @ parrot: ~ # cd <pack-name>
Now we must edit the package source code and make the changes needed to the source code of the package

root @ parrot: ~ # nano examples / classic-format.c
After that the important is check for any build dependencies the package may have, so install any build dependencies if needed

root @ parrot: ~ # apt install dh-autoreconf libnfc-dev libssl-dev
With the dependencies installed the next command is all it takes to build our new version

root @ parrot: ~ # dpkg-buildpackage
When the build completes without errors you’ll be able to install it

root @ parrot: ~ # dpkg -i ../<pack-name>.deb
