Check if /opt installation is correct
Status in ARB Lint:
Check if /opt installation is correct.
our package should install most files in
/opt/extras.ubuntu.com/<packagename>. This includes all libraries,
binaries, and configuration files. [Note: This is different from the
standard requirements for Debian/Ubuntu packages, and will produce
several lintian warnings for 'dir-or-file-in-opt', which you can
ignore.] There are several exceptions to this general rule:
* The standard files in /usr/share/doc/<packagename> are permitted, such as copyright, changelog, and examples.
* The .desktop file is installed in the standard location /usr/share/applications, but must have the prefix 'extras-' added to its
name. Example: extras-foobar.desktop for a package named foobar.
