This article shows how to workaround an issue where building a debian package with MADDE can result in its execution bit not being set.


Currently if you build Debian package with

mad dpkg-buildpackage

using MADDE and place binaries to /opt/ directory (which is known as optification and aim to reduce disk usage for /usr directory) it will fail to set execution bit to your binary.


  1. Find dh_fixperms file. For example, on my system it's under ~/NokiaQtSDK/Maemo/4.6.2/madbin/dh_fixperms
  2. Replace it with File:Dh fixperms.txt (rename it back to dh_fixperms).


This problem is not present in Nokia Qt SDK 1.0.1.
