The established structure of the
.deb file name is
According to this paragraph:
Some packages don't follow the name structure
package_version_architecture.deb. Packages renamed by dpkg-name will follow this structure. Generally this will have no impact on how packages are installed by dselect/dpkg, but other installation tools might depend on this naming structure.
However, are there any real situations when renaming the
.deb package file is highly unrecommended? Is it a normal practice to provide a custom
.deb file name for my software?
My Program for Linux v1.0.0 (Pro).deb— the custom naming
my-program_1.0.0-1_amd64.deb— the proper official naming
I'm not planning to create a repo, I'm just hosting the
.deb package of my software on my website for direct download.
