dh: No compatibility level specified in debian/compat
dh: This package will soon FTBFS; time to fix it!
dh: cannot read debian/control: No such file or directory



I am getting the above message.

Is this serious?

How can it be fixed?


I read on the web that a file named debian/compat should be created with the number 9 inside. But I don't where to save such a file.


Any assistance appreciated.


I am using Linux Mint 17.2. About 500 GB. single boot.
