Good day,

I am new to debian/ubuntu and Python open source world.

I have checked out the ubiquity source code. Currently I am running on gutsy.

I want to know how do I build Ubiquity from source? I have run configure, make 
and make install but this does not install it on your system.

I am trying to customize the installer for a project.

Or should I use ./ I have run this as well. Does not install it on 
your system.

Or dpkg-dev?

I am just trying to change something small for now like the welcome message.

I am a bit confused and any pointers would be appreciated.
