look into checkinstall

Also to individual files? The files I want to put in system folders (/usr/bin as example) are projects compiled by myself. I don't want to make a debian package with sources to compile. I want to put my executable file directly into /usr/bin folder. This is right?

Thank you.

Uffff ... the command creates .deb package file, but opening archive with deb-gview it contains no files. The problem was not solved. How to add the files into the .deb package?

Well, done with "dpkg -b" and custom control file. ;)
