    Description

      When installing the Scene Builder DEB package on Ubuntu 13.04, the user gets an Alert Dialog telling that the package violates quality standards (see attached screenshot and detailed output message).

      Based on the detailed message, it looks like the following rules are violated:
      http://lintian.debian.org/tags/wrong-file-owner-uid-or-gid.html
      - these address by adding fakeroot to call to packager

      http://lintian.debian.org/tags/maintainer-address-missing.html
      - the control file mainainer requires a valid email address

      http://lintian.debian.org/tags/control-file-has-bad-owner.html.
      - Permissions weren't set correctly for the two executable files in DEBIAN (the set permission stuff)
