I realise that this question exists but the answer doesn't explain how to create
DEB packages and whether they're suitable.
I'd like to package my Java 8 game for Linux. Most people don't have Java 8 (and some don't even have Java), so including the JRE in the package would be great.
The package should also have a logo that shows up on most desktop environments.
Lastly, the package should be cross distro (or cover a large number of distros), if possible, because there are simply so many distros.
How would I go about achieving this?
