Also in case someone has installed proprietary graphics driver from the
webpage and not through debian/ubuntu packages the build will fail with
an error about libGL when running dh_shlibdeps.
This can be resolved by placing a file called shlibs.local inside the
debian folder with the contents of "libGL 1".
