    Hello,
    don`t work, too.

I try to create a deb-Packet from Songbird_1.1.1-1018_linux-i686.tar.gz.

    Unable to detect the top source folder in the archive. This should be something like <name>-<version>.

    What is wrong?

    Regards,
    Marcel

I packaged directory to file-version.tgz but, no luck, still cannot continue. next button is not working.

ehcp is a package/program that I want to make deb package using giftwrap, and I cannot make deb, so, ehcp is affected ... :)

Mmk.

The answer for "Unable to detect the top source folder in the archive. This should be something like <name>-<version>" is simple:

If you're trying to package a program, the directory containing the files should be called fooprog-1.0 or similar. At least, that's what the error message suggests. I tested it and it works.
